One of my favorites - or maybe the favorite - bar in Columbus:

A - Love the dart boards, great jukebox, especially compared to many newer places. It's old school, flipping through the album covers rather than digital. Nice long bar, decent small patio out back. Brick interior and art deco ceiling is cool. I do agree, it can get really crowded and cramped at times.

Q - Great time, great tunes, good service and decent selection and in a fun part of town. Despite what previous reviewer said, there is more parking than there appears and, in the summer if it's nice, certainly no problem walking the area.

S - Always the same bartenders, no small talk or laboring with certain customers. Always seems as quick and efficient as possible.

S - Normal bar selections. Macrobrews, Guinness, and a few others on tap. Maybe 10-20 others available by bottle. Not a place to go to try beer really.

F - Doesn't serve ny

V - Drinks are reasonably priced

So close to Barley's, and yet, so far. It's hard to spend time here when you know what awaits a few doors north on High. This is a friendly little neighborhood abr with decent enough service, few draft beers, and a short selection of micros of the standard stripe.

The brick walls and old wood are OK as are the wall full of dartboards. The bar is inviting, but this can fill in a hurry and the entry/exit corridor is strictly one at a time. Limited parking in the area.
