The drinks are really good here. Strong. About $10 and up. Small place and pretty dark. Try the crowdpleaser.

Cool bar great drinks. The bartender was super nice took his time explaining drinks we were not over charged. A must stop if you are in town. We were trying out different places and he took the time to give us names, directions and hours.
