Utah's only real neighborhood bar – This place is fun and laid back. The drinks are cheap and the staff is cool. They know my name, what I drink and that I also want a roll of quarters for the pinball machine (awesome pinball). Also I'm in love with their french fries. This place is my hang-out, my neighborhood bar.
ok bar, bad service – I went to my x wifes place with some friends and played pool. the music was ok and the tables where so so but the bar tenders are very grumpy and rude. I dont recomend this place to anyone, there are much better bars for less $ than my x wifes place.
A joke with no punchline. – New in town? Looking for a dive bar? Stay away from this place! The owner is nice, but some of the people that work for her, wow. Yes, reality is a place a varying opinions. Moving on.... This place is very sad. You got a grey fox from the east coast who practicably lives there. Thought he was a fun guy, until you realize that he tends to short change people and talks massive amounts of sh!t. Or the guy from the north west who has a passive aggressive problem. Talk about pent up rage. If I hear "I, KNOW.....pause......DUDE" combined with a stark look, one more time... And some of the people who hang out there. Radiate tons of loser energy.
Unfortunately, Twilight Bar is no better. The girl with the annoying voice, ugh. I guess big boobs don't get you everywhere. Don't get me started on it's patrons.
Good luck: There is nothing fun in this city. Nothing but sad, loons, right wing nut jobs and superfluous superiority complex from a nutty religion (and one religion others consider a cult).
One might think I'm being negative. I think my warning is positive. Keep driving...
Great people – The bar is unique and an essential for any out-of state, non-LDS folks-preventing one from losing your shit in this republican, right-wing, Gay hating (what kind of asshat, backwards poltroon is so fearful of a person who happens to want to have a beautiful relationship with another somebody who is the same sex, so freakin what), Red State, flipside anal sex freaks "cause according to LDS sanctions, buttsex will sufice within the LDS code of virgin status. I met my wife katy there, and had the best time of my life. Still miss her. I also met some of the greatest souls ever; Katy Boog, Jesse, Travis, Adam, Amy, Hayes Family, Melissa, Jerry. Great Place, good people, a place to get away from all the b.s.
Good Times – I came for a birthday party and decided that I love this place. The drinks are cheap and I love the staff. Plus it is a bonus to have a patio that I can drink and smoke on. What more could I ask for????
Another plus is I was able to have a good time without putting up with the usual D-Bags. I will be back. This is one of the best kept secrets of Salt Lake City bars....

Warm and Welcoming – The experience I had during my last three visits to my new favorite place was different than I expected. I heard intellectual conversation presented with extreme humor. This is a rare quality I haven't ever found outside the corner bar that is tried and true, a staple of the community. This might sound trite but it's that place were everybody knows your name.
I found a lot of scuddle butt about town concerning this bar, it's what lead me to it to begin with. I mean hey, if they are talking about you, you must be doing something right and this place is.
Here's to meeting you in one the most intriguing bars I've been in since my college days in Milwaukee.

Low Class, No Girls, Huge Lesbian Bartenders. – If you like no service, low class staff and over-pricing then this is the place for you. If you are new to drinking and have never been to a good bar then maybe you should check this place for future reference as a place to avoid.
I guess the people are just to cool for me?!? – This bar at one point was just awesome. The bar tenders are still awesome. It is just now over crowded with a dip-s**t crowd that hangs out there. I was a regular for over 3 years until it slowly became the IN place. Now if you go on weekends you have to wait 5-10 minutes for a drink and while doing so you are forced to listen to a bunch of "I'm to cool for you" people spew cr*p into your ear. It has just become to trendy for me. Drinks are reasonably priced though. If you do decide to go... go Mon. trough Thurs. before 5 because they have free pool and there is rarely anyone there.
Sucky help. Sucky people. – I went in after reading about the "awesome bartenders" where they all know youre name and are so friendly. WHATEVER!! The stupid girl behind the bar mad eme the WORST bloody mary I have ever had. And then over charged me for it!! Thank god I was able to bring in my 18 year old friend though!! They are really crappy at spotting those ID's ha ha ha ha!!! I wouldn't go there again if you PAID me!
The Best – This is my favorite bar. The bartenders will know you by name, the people are friendly and you rarely see the sexijen types at this place. If you like lifting weights, popping your collar or anything involving Greek letters stay away. If you like down-to-earth people, friendly conversations and a kick (butt) bloody mary, this is the place for you. The bar is never too crowded and the abundance of pool tables is appreciated, also 75 cents per game is cheaper than most places. The outdoor patio is very nice for the warm summer nights and the cheap drinks are what keeps me coming back.
The only things I would improve are to get a better dart board and start taking tabs as this is a cash only bar and the ATM gets $2.50 for doing nothing.
