This place had great atmosphere and great pub food. The drinks were cheap and the cocktails were awesome! We didn't want to leave. Lucky we were walking home!

What more do you need to know? If you're staying for dinner, the ribs are ridiculous. Pretty sure they offered a vast array of shots and cocktails for pretty cheap aswell. I generally stick to beer, so at $4 for a proper handle pint, this is your go to, to start the night right.

We went in here one night and were immediately blinded by the beauty of the female bar staff. It was like they had the best looking girls in town working there. It got better, asked for 3 pints expecting a round to cost in the region of 26 dollars. 12 DOLLARS FOR 3 PINTS!! Top notch! We had a sharing... More
