The band that was playing, Blue Motel Room was too much fun! Great music, fun crowd and quick service from the bartenders. Ron at the door was a really cool dude. Had a couple of tasty Negra Modelos and an all around good time.

Very good bartender, knowledgeable, cool joint 21 to 60. Worth a stop for sure. In the funk zone off State Street. A little more sophisticated than other places, but nice thoughtful bartenders.
