It's smoky, hot and crowded, just like a good dive bar should be. Packing the place for blues acts such as Mudcat and King Johnson, the crowd can choose to sit at the long table facing the performers or dance in the small space in front of the stage. Past the pool tables, the back deck is a nice retreat from the smoke and noise. It's almost always crowded, but the bartenders are on their toes, ready to wet your whistle with a cold beer.
