This place is small but loads of fun. The drinks are great (grape soda), staff is cool, bartenders are good looking. Weekends are great.

About ten of us happened upon this place while walking down the street. Ended up staying several hours. The place really gets hopping around 9 PM with lots of colorful locals. I would definitely go back, and I don't even drink!
