Went here on a crowded Thursday night during showing of Rupaul’s Dragrace. All types of men present, but a very attractive clientele overall. Friendly service.

Great place great beer prices large lot next to it for outside partying not sure that's all the time. The air was cold for a over packed bar even upstairs! Just a cool place with variety of people.
