I think that this is a very cool neighbourhood bar.There is always a good crowd so others must agree. The vibe is just right, a nice energy level (not stressful), you can be private or casually chat up some of the other customers. It is also not big - most of the U shaped bar dominates the space. And the owners are usually around and they take their business seriously. The wine and beer selection is fantastic and the bartenders are usually very helpful in making sure you have a drink that you will enjoy. A lesser known fact - the food is fantastic. Very nice presentation, tasty with a good variety of bar food (appetizers) and meals. The salads with raw fish are delicious - I have never been disappointed by anything I have ordered.
Picnics with a view, roller-skating nostalgia, and a party for gay headbangers.
