This is a place for people to come chill having a few drinks while eating some good food. Sure there are "artsy" people, but that makes for a nice, creative, relaxed and clean air environment. The no-smoking initiative is outstanding for most people. Smokers can just go outside and chill on the bench, in a quiet neighborhood.

Pros: good drinks, friendly people, nice art in stairwell

Cons: location is a decent walk from galleries/hangouts

You think that's bad? For years the place was smoking, and when I forgot it had turned into nonsmoking and went to light a smoke, you'd think the bartender thought I had a bomb on me. He went absolutely berserk, screaming like a little girl and yelling profanity so the whole bar could hear. The bouncer then came over and violently tried to pull me off the barstool (I'm a 115 pound female who was not drunk). Before he was successful though, the bartender demanded I pay my tab (even though I didn't have one). Frustrated that I wouldn't pay, then screamed that I am a wh*re, which led to me calling him a name back...which led to him pouring a full beer on my head. Yep!

No matter what misunderstanding occurred, there was absolutely no excuse for a violent assault. If I wasn't feeling such shock and humiliation, I would have called the police.....but now I think i'll just stick to writing bad reviews....

Cons: Psycho Bartenders, Meathead Bouncers, Smelly Hipters

An aquaintance told me to check this place out when I was home for Christmas. The bouncer here pushed my friend (almost down a flight of stairs) for not getting out of the way fast enough. The guy swore in her face when she was too stunned to move. My friend is straight-edge and therefore had not had a drink. When she complained, she was told never to come back and treated like she was an hysterical drama queen. We felt totally intimidated. If you're still curious about the place, be sure to bring a bodyguard!
