  • Stopped in for a late lunch in the middle of the was wonderful! Live music, friendly staff, unique, and historic! The Pitt sandwich was delicious! Highly recommend!!  more »
  • Great little Saloon with an "old timey" feel to it. Bar staff are attentive and live music was on point. Drinks were a bit pricey, but I'm not typically much of a drinker.  more »
  • I really liked this place. Up front there's a bar and lots of tables and chairs that you can sit at, have drinks and listen to music. All the way in the back there's another room that also has a bar but it's more like a night club with lights and dance floor. That's where we spent most of the night. Drinks were great and flowing all night. We had a blast.
  • Pretty cool bar. One if the places Edgar Allen Poe used to drink at. Went on St Patrick's day and there was live music and a lively crowd but not too many people that it was uncomfortable. They serve food but I didn't have any while we were there but the stuff they brought to people looked good. Will definitely be back!
