This is the best beer bar in Reno. Excellent/wide selection on tap. Very hip atmopsphere. It's a hookah bar too, but no cigarettes allowed. Weird. Not a place to watch the game, but otherwise a great spot. They seem to be open randomly though. They have holy grail on tap which I love.
The location is good but not great, too many wandering random tweakers & dope fiends around.

2nd street Reno, where the miscreants come out at night. Usually synonymous with a crappy karaoke bar w/ lots of fat chicks from the joint next door.

But at this place, you get a weird mix atmosphere wise. Extremely poor, marginally employed people posing about being in the acting/music/arts industry, community college bro fratty students still wearing their baseball hats backwards like Fred Durst in the 90s, hoodrats, wannabe gang/wanksters, ugly/fat and then some hot chicks. Lots of beer taps, I'd guess 20-25. A lot of crap on tap, but they support the almost nonexistant reno beer crawl peeps, so that's a plus. Can't really think of a beer they have here that is worth going here for that alone. $1 pitchers of Natural Light. Some real winners on hand for that promo. I like cheap beer sometimes, but I guess you'd just have to see the crowd that shows up for that type of thing, its not the cool college crowd, its the I'm pulling a 1.45 gpa in phys. ed. community college thing as a 27 yo vibe. Lots of fake tans too? WTF? On DUDES!!!

Service, kind of shitty, they like to advertise half off stuff when its actually like 30% off and get chippy when you talk "real" math, not "fuzzy" math to them. Then some stuff is cash, some not, pay at different times, ah the good ol days of just running one simple tab. . .

Prices are definitely good for downtown, even if downtown Reno is definitely on the dive side if you've ever lived or traveled around the country/world.

So basically a decent layout downtown, some decent service, but just downright terrible demographic they are appealing to. I mean, they're totally going for the Filthy McNasty (actual bar name in Reno) demo here.

If I could just drink here w/o any mouthbreathers and posers, it would be an above average bar. But atmosphere and quality count, so here it is.
