The experienced barflies that patronize this out-of-the-way Portage Park dive generally keep to themselves, but the bartenders are friendly enough, offering up free snack mixes and slinging stiff cocktails. Old-fashioned street lamps dot the woody interior while a small lighted stage provides the setting for local rock (and occasionally country) bands to woo the crowd. The mismatched tables and chairs add to the cluttered character of the space.
