This bar is a staple. It definitely helps if the bartenders recognize you, I'd say I'm a firm believer in that. From a distance I can easily tell when bartender doesn't like you, this bar is great at that. In a way, it's part of the bar's charm. In the City, this is definitely a hot spot, and I sympathize with the bartenders who have to deal with every walk to life. Perhaps at times, they're a bit harsh, but it's within reason. The day time crowd is usually more tolerable. They jukebox is probably my favorite: Ludicra, Metallica, Flipper, they got everything I want. I'm glad that they keep their staple beers year 'round, namely pliny. They make a good effort to get a lot of different beers, even if at times it's not what I'm in the mood for. They're Barleywine Fest is one of my favorite days of the year. I'm super stoked that the bar is surrounded by some of my favorite eateries. They also let dogs in, some of the best dogs I've ever met. I've had my birthday 'gathering' here for the last two years. it's fun, if you treat them right, they'll treat you just as good.
