Even though it's been renovated and renamed since its days as Turtle Bay Cafe, overlook maintains an authentic, divey patina—an increasing rarity in this neighborhood. While die-hard regulars from the old establishment still keep spots at the bar, the majority of pint swillers are younger after-work professionals who mingle around the pool table or watch sports on one of 30 televisions. Enormous booths in the back make this a great place to bring an entire sales team or political club, but with overlook's friendly, low-key vibe, your group will be mixing it up in no time.


A back wall is covered with original drawings by cartoonists like Mad Magazine’s Al Jaffee and Beetle Bailey's Mort Walker.
