The jazz pulled us in but the atmosphere kept us around. We were drawn to the back room that had a sign reading "2 shot minimum" Ended up staying at the bar for 2+ hours listening to live music and talking with the owner. Incredible...More

went to this cool bar on multiple occasions, space is very cool, staff was always hospitable, the beer was always cold and the mescal shot glass was always full.
