  • Daily 11am-2am
Scenesters love dropping by this strip mall drinking den on the south side of Mill Avenue, as do college kids, frat cats, local musicians, or anyone looking for an alcoholic escape. What's the appeal? Cheap booze ($2.50 bottled domestics and $6 pitchers) for one, as well as plenty of cheap thrills (including numerous arcade games and pool tables), and plenty of opportunities for people-watching. It's also spacious, with a slew of comfy booths and couches where you can perch with friends while soaking up the shabby-chic dive atmosphere and earning hipster cred.
