After a nice dinner, we decided to find someplace nearby to shoot a game of pool and wandered into Farraguts. The bar itself was unremarkable but the clientele was slightly less trendy / affluent than you typically find in Andersonville. It seems like a place where people go to just drink and not worry about being part of any "scene". The drinks were cheap and we got seats down at the end of the bar by the pool table. The atmosphere was relaxed and we starting trading games with some of the other bar patrons. Everyone seemed friendly and we had a good time. There was one kind of seedy couple... both in their mid to late 50s... he had about 3 teeth and she was so drunk she could hardly stay on her stool. But no one seemed too put out by having to deal with them. I've been back once since and it was pretty much the same. Would I go back a third time? Maybe if nothing else was going on, but not a 'destination' bar.

In Short
Opened in 1997, this neighborhood bar is dark, smoky and without distinctive decor (save electric chandeliers and a wall of coat hooks), but boasts an immediate, unforced comfort. It's also within staggering distance of…
