Live music: They have it Wednesday through Saturday. Enjoyable wth comfy chairs and a dark atmosphere.

Good and drinks: We got the fondue for 2 for $16 which included smoked gouda cheese with chicken, steak bites, apples, grapes and crostinis. Martinis were $8 ($5 if you are there for happy hour) with a wide selection. Server was attentive.

Tip: The Duluth Trolley drops off out front. Rides are $.50/person/ride. Might be a good option to avoid having to park downtown.

Favorite bar in Duluth, a drink menu for every taste, and a shockingly good, but small, food menu. Thursday's are the best bet for value but any night is a good night for black water.

We stopped in on a Thursday and it was Ladies Night. $5 martinis and 1/2 price sushi. Their martinis were awesome, the bar staff awesome and were really good mixologists. The sushi was good. It a really cool place. Think jazz, Frank Sinatra, dark with a backlit bar. They have a no cap policy, but no other specific dress code.
