“Your BAR in the OTR”

  • “ Seriously, I love it here. ”

    This is my new go-to bar…Drinks are cheap, there’s a variety and the bar is gorgeous.The staff is fun and friendly.

  • “ How am I just now finding this place??? ”

    I’m a fan. This is one of the few places in OTR that doesn’t feel like it’s been taken over by “hipsters” and you don’t have to fight just to get a good drink. I will definitely be back.

  • “ A great time was had by all! ”

    The drink prices were very good and it was over all a really fun atmosphere.  This is definitely a change from the other establishments in OTR, but is a great spot when you just want to dance!
