It's kinda like dirty nelly's or the page in sf. You will find a lot of the same folks in this bar,  surprised they don't sell lifetime memberships.

They have a pool table if that's your thing, TVs everywhere always playing golf, basketball, hockey, football, and a juke box for your music pleasure.  Reminds me of Cheers, everyone knows your name. Something I can review but you gotta experience for yourself.

Rude bartender (blonde hair). I ordered a non-alcoholic drink to save money which I usually do because I rather give my money as a good tip instead.

Not your average place to have a beer or a drink. All of the bartenders are great and so is the atmosphere.

I don't sing but I had such a good time watching everyone do their thing. I've been there several times but it was the first time I was there for karaoke. Also have a live music night which is always good.
