The bar has such a relaxing atmosphere and their smokey old fashions are fantastic. I had the privilege to watch two young singer/song writers perform by the name of Payton Riley and Dylan Rhys (pronounced Reese). They were amazing. Definitely a great place to try out.”
Adam also said “I had an appointment here recently and I must say it was fantastic. The barber was extremely friendly and welcoming. She treated me like an old friend which created a nice and relaxing atmosphere. They also offer mixed drinks or beer on tap, though I didnt partake since I was on lunch break.
