Below Vinny's restaurant, kind of a secret entrance leads you into the basement with stone walls and a long bar. Very popular place, many beers on tap.

They also serve Russian Mules in real copper cups, and are very good.

Yes it's in a basement. Lots of things going on here. Definitely for the under 50 crowd, more like under 40 or 30.

Don't go here if you're looking for a nice night out with friends. This is more of a scroungy place to hand with girls/guys and drink, play pool, and listen to music.

This is a place we make a point to slip into when in Dubuque with friends. Rugged and dungeon like. Good live music. Good drinks on tap; bartenders just need to fill the pints to the top. Always a place to go for people watching. Great outdoor space for smoke break or warm nights.

I have to stop here everytime I get to Dubuque - it was was jumping on this particular weekend with it being St Patricks Day! Great Fun - live music - just a cool place! Check it out if you get to town!

One of a kind for the Tri-State area. We attended a benifit here last week and very unique and cool! Beatiful limestone and gorgeous bar with blues band -local artists. Very eclectic! Very Unique! Very relaxing! Bar is always packed!
