Pros: Great jukebox and atmosphere!

Cons: No tap beer...bottles only.

Ok, so if you're like me, and like most Americans, there is a specific check list that you use when visiting a dive bar for the first time, so let's check that list against the Beechwood Inn...

1 Board games missing at least 3 essential pieces? check

2 Random old timey barber chair that serves no discernible purpose? check

3 World's tiniest Men's room, complete with sink smaller than that in Barbie's joint? oh yeah

4 Miss matched tables and seating that make a basement church pancake supper look like the show room at Walter E Smithe? check, and double check

5 Mildly terrifying door in the back that apparently leads to someone's frigging APARTMENT. check mate

So .... yeah, the Beechwood is a dive bar. They don't even worry about the frilly nonsense of a soda gun, it's just bottles of pop out of an igloo cooler. But this bar is great. It's nothing but character. It is what it is, and doesn't pretend to be anything else. A pretty amazing feat in my mind. You just don't see a place with cojones like that anymore. It's the kind of place where you can take a date, and say with out words..."I am comfortable enough in my own skin to show you who I really am. A graduate with a degree as a Sandwich Artist."

Fantastic dive bar! Old school jukebox, board games everywhere, $2 beers. It's awesome because you never have to wait for a drink and you can hear yourself think. Bring friends, even on the weekend.
