The only reason to go to this bar...

The highlight of the evening was the doorman named Jacob. This guy is god's gift to doormen. Doormen across the country should take a page from this kid's book. He has a smile that could cure cancer, and the legs of a dancer. You should come here just to meet Jake.

Excellent Cheap Drink + Tunes

I'm shocked by the other review and thus had to post. I had top shelf liquor for $3 during Happy Hour, great music, a knowledgeable and very cool/friendly bartender and chill, good, cool atmosphere. I recommend.

Some Hints:

  • The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
