Went there for a few pints last weekend as the place seemed full of life. The bartender constantly yelled at people on the streets to come in and enjoy some beverages. Great decor and lots of character.

If you like kitsch, authentic bars then you will love The Original. No tourists. No glamour. Just low-key drinks and cheap beer-- A true dive and proud of it.
