There are "performers" there for most nights. Some are ok, but most are pretty sad. There were two girls asking for money and some sleezy guys gave them tips. They call it a "closed mic" because the people performing are doing sets. However they do not audition and are just friends of the bartender, so they are not so good. I prefer open mic environments. They are welcoming and artistic. This bar has a lot off attention, needy people. Its really a sad scene.

Under bad new management?

I heard great things about this bar but the two times I went recently were terrible. I didn't see any rocker types just sleazy guys I'd never want to talk to. I'm guessing it has new owners so maybe they will figure it out.
Arrive Early or Wear as Little as Possible

I live down the street from this bar and I like its unpretentious vibe. The music is good, (though limited in that the deejay doesn't take requests). Try the Bloodhound, a house specialty with Ruby Vodka and Grapefruit. Most of the bartenders are good, but a couple will completely ignore you in favor of a nicer rack. Oh, and they're also in the habit of saying, "that guy over there can help you." If you can look past the sub-par service, the candlelit tables, PacMan table and pool table are all worth it, not to mention reasonably priced quaffs.
