This is a cool little bar downtown. They have the most amazing cocktails. It is a small bar and turns into a bit of a nightclub but overall is a great little place.

Have you ever wanted to feel like you were trapped in a jogger's scrotum? Then this is the place for you. They'll take anyone's cover even if they're closed (no refunds, didn't happen to me personally, but I did watch it happen when I left)....More

This is one of my all time favorite places to visit when I lived in Portsmouth and when I come back to visit. It's a great place hidden from the tourists and yuppies that have increased in the years. Chill house music fills the small,...More

I had my first martinis ever here and have searched everywhere for a place that even comes close. Nothing does! Their espresso martini is amazing. The others are very good too but I just go straight for my favorite now. It's an odd place because...More

"Martini bar". Pretty expensive for the area and generally the crowd doesn't justify the price.
