This place sure has a long legacy behind it: After opening in 1952 as the Red Diamond, this former residence has been known as Cholla Bay, Louie's, VJ's, and McGuires throughout the years. Things settled down when it became the blues joint Warsaw Wally's for a couple of decades, but switched into the 26th Street Blues Bar, and finally Chopper John's. Besides offering live music on Friday and Saturday nights, this nightspot has the usual pool tables, dart machines, and touch-screen video games. Just don't bust your head open on one of the low-hanging rafters.
