So disappointed, we were looking bacon and got nothing. Since the bar moved they stopped serving food. It would be nice if their website reflected the change. We had a drink, but the martini was made with cheap vodka.

We had some really great drinks at Bad Decisions after going out on the pedal mill. Not much of a street presence but glad we went in. We would go back.

As an ex neighbor to Bad Decisions, it was always my favorite spot. Amazing and creative drink menu, and an unpretentious atmosphere. Go in and trust the bartenders.

Crammed in which made for a very crowded experience in what is a small venue. Atmosphere pretty good and service prompt but you need to book a table really.
