Live bluegrass music on Wednesday nights where the local artists pop in to play. Great draft selection and a nice pub menu. Great stop in a hip fun area of town!!

We went here on a Thursday. There was live blue Grass and the band was terrific. We had the vision nachos which were quite good. Great beer selection on draught and good bar tenders. Go on Thursday and enjoy.
