Not my choice as part of the pub crawl route as my friends dragged me to this place. Maybe we were there on the wrong night(Saturday) as it was filled with college age patrons grinding to the club music. If you are looking for eye candies, this is the place for you. Otherwise, move on to 16-Bit where I had... More

I've been hanging at OTR more often and gave this bar a shot since Neons and Japps was so crowded. I always passed it and seen people dancing in the window which seemed kind of trashy. Because it is. Inside was so hot and I immediately got sweaty and sticky. The drinks are very high but I guess that goes... More

This pub also doubles are a live music venue with plenty of room at the bar and around the stage to allow for couches/chairs for those who like to lounge. My favorite part of the bar is 80's night by Gerald who now manages the bar. It would be amazeballs to drink, dance and see a huge uprising of deadbeats... More

We had a good time at The Drinkery. We were there on a Saturday night so it was loud and crowded. A band was playing and they were good. My husband asked for several "main stream" beers and they didn't have them so he was disappointed. But I'm sure that's the point of that bar-to have a different selection. The... More

My friends and I love heading down to Main Street for kareoke on Tuesday evenings. I've sang a lot of kareoke (in Japan and the US) and DJHotwheels has THE best song selection I've ever seen. There's plenty of space at the Drinkery to dance and the bar tenders are quite pleasant. Food is not served at the Drinkery, but... More
