Bar
“This is the place to go if you're looking for a bar where you can enjoy a laid-back environment, in an upscale location. The music is not too loud and there will not be annoyingly loud/rude drunks there. The bar has a dress code requirement: wearing jeans and a nice shirt would be enough to get in, but feel free to dress up a bit! There is trivia each week and a different happy hour drink special each night. ”
