Bar
“A major hot spot of the OTR neighborhood with rockin live music every night. Small local and national touring bands. It can be loud. They have some good pub food, mostly for lunch I believe. Sometimes dance parties in the dank stone basement if you're not claustrophobic. If you are, out back is a nice patio space to smoke one.”
