Great local bar with cheap drinks and a good atmosphere. Plenty of locals in there and good bar staff. Worth a visit if you want a quiet place to get a drink. Note that they only accept cash.

Like some other posters, was asked for ID at the door by some troll (fair enough, strict drinking laws in the state). However, as I’m not an American, the person demanded a passport. I’m 55 and look about as close to someone in their early...More
