Black Watch was born the same year I was 1959. Has been owned and operated by the same family for ever. It's a perfect place to watch the Christmas Parade every year and is clean and cozy. They are famous for there Kamachazis!

An experience. Kinda loud and crowded. Colorful crowd. Energy and coolness. Friendly bartenders. Hard to imagine a greater dive bar.
