Pool tables 3 are ok . Dont expect to play if your not a regular . Beers always cold . Music ok . Nice patio if you like drunks that smoke . Woman that are cheatin on their husbands go there with their lowlife boyfriends . Good bar to hide out from your spouse . Major drunks though if you can handle them its a good place . Friendly bar tendors. lots of darts

My husband loves to go there after work. He let me know that they have Reggae Thursdays. IT WAS AWESOME. They have a live band who is really good. We also went back on Sunday night for their Soul Music Sundays and the live band was also very good. For locals looking for a good time I think those two nights are really cool. I definitely give it two thumbs up!!

Characters is a cool place to hang out have a few drinks relax and shoot pool or darts. They have live bands on the weekend and they are usually pretty good bands. The friday bartender kat is the best.

My friends and I went here on a Sunday afternoon to watch the Raiders play against the Chargers...I figured it would be a good game to go to a bar and watch the game. As I entered there were no more than 10 people (all bar patrons) drinking with zero interest in the game. Upon entering I was told I couldn't wear my hat backwards and at halftime when I went to get a pizza (there was no menu there) I was told to leave if i was going to bring outside food in. No happy hour on weekends and sub-par service makes this white-trash bar a no go for anyone who isn't a patron.

Under new ownership. The patio has been refurbished and there is a service bar outside. 6 new plasma TV's with satellite have been installed. There are bands from all genre on the weekends and two bands on Tuesday night. Karaoke and pool tournaments on Sunday. Still has great staff and the new owner (Neil) is a hoot.

P.S. The bar is no longer smokey but smoking is allowed on the patio.

Ever heard Toby Keith's song "I Love This Bar"? That's just how you feel when you walk into Characters. Friendly people. Some are shooting pool, some are playing darts, some are out on the patio relaxing, some are having a drink to celebrate the end of a workday or final exams, some are city employees, some are students, some are teachers, some are construction workers, some are loan brokers -- they become friends quickly. The owners go out of their way to say hello to newcomers. Bands play regularly, just check the schedule. Sometimes there's a lingerie show early on Friday where you can win an outfit or other item. Prices are reasonable, the characters are priceless. I'd like something in the way of snacks but there's plenty around. A good stop after leaving Characters is Joey's Bar-b-que for a to-go dinner.

Pros: In my city, easy to get to, parking okay, friendly people

Cons: No real food service

This is a great little smokey dive bar, three pool tables, five dart boards, great bar staff. Live music on the back patio (mostly punk rock) on weekends.

Good prices, good people.
