This place is really cool for drinks and entertainment! They had live music the night we went. It is nice and dark inside, with a great ambiance. Good for groups and for a romantic evening.

For a small quaint place to eat, try "Jorge's Hide-A-Way" in the Old City. Make reservation....small but great food! Ken
