Great Blues Jam – I stopped in at Pat's for the first time last night (Monday night). There was a Blue's jam that started at 9:00 p.m. and went til 2:00 a.m. For the most part there were some great players. When players sat in who weren't quite pro, they were still included and seemed to also enjoy the experience. All blues players are welcomed and because it is a jam there is a variety of music that will please everyone. The best part of it is that the music is good without blowing out the back walls with loudness.
Talking about Eat, Drink, & Play... LOVE IT! – I just discovered a hidden treasure in the valley!!! I am amazed I didn't visit this place before. The atmosphere is chill and friendly. Drinks and specials are the best, and the big screen TV made me turn over my last favorite spot and come here. Bar tenders are very friendly and fun, they take care of you, so take care of them! Plus there is a tinny square hole on the wall that connects the bar with the awesome Mexican restaurant next door!!!! Awesome FOOD, available to order and eat AT the bar! I couldn't ask for anything more. This place is awesome, and I am watching the Lakers game there tonight!
DANGER! – They will rob you blind. We ordered about $40 worth of drinks. When the bill came, it was over $100. When we asked for an itemized bill, the waitress (who was drunk) went crazy. She threw glasses and kicked over a bar stool.
She also tried to sell us sex acts in the bathroom for $50.
STAY AWAY – I love a dive...and I even can love a bitch...but the extra large blonde one with a booze and attitude problem will send me elsewhere... I hope the owner knows how his staff treat potential new regulars, because we will never be back except to perhaps find the owner and tell him/her myself about the most obnoxious drunken tool I ever did see...
Don't go, unless you like to pay fat rude cracked out bitches to treat you like garbage.
if you ain't a steeler fan, you ain't sh!t – for those early morning steeler games, this is the joint to be at.
come in the front door and immediately turn left, you're going to find the best bunch of yinzers cuddled up close to a big screen tv enjoying the cheap drinks and some good foods.
A classic dive bar – I always have a mixed feeling with this place. Sometime people are nice. Sometimes the staff is nice. Sometime either or both will be annoying. I don't usually like chick bartenders and this place is not much of an exception. Sometimes they can be real bitchy and useless (when they are drunk) and spend a bit too much time paying attention to dudes or pornstars. But whatever. The drinks are cheap. They have a lot of tvs if you want to watch a game. They do also have a lot of creeps hanging out, if you're lucky they're busy playing pool.
It's a dive bar in the classic sense.
I don't think they have karaoke anymore, not that it was good place for it, and that seems to eliminated some younger people and especially females.
A good bar, try the lunch special – This is a real "bar" bar, with a good music system, tv's tuned to sports, a legion of locals, a few drunks, and the best minimally dressed bartenders in the neighborhood. It's not upscale, and not for the martini-minded, but it's a good hangout. One of the unpromoted bargains is at lunch: buy a sandwich at the window that connects Pat's to Kerry's sandwich shop next door, and you'll get a coupon for a free drink at the bar. The sandwiches and sides are generous, so your beer won't send you back to work all loopy. You can even tip, and walk out for less than ten bucks. Tough to beat.
Best Dive bar – I have been coming to this place on and off for 15 years. Not only are the bartenders hot but the people there are friendly. You can have a few and talk to the person next to you. The attitude here is that there is no attitude. I am always glad I go. The beer was inexpensive as well, at least the non micro brews.
GREAT dive bar – Drove to the valley from LA to this bar for the name alone. It did not disappoint. Full of locals, from the neighborhood drunk(s) to the retired adult industry stars, it was an eclectic mix. You will definitely be entertained by the happenings in the bar. The bartenders are hot, cool, knowledgeable and give great service. Drinks are strong and cheap. Can't wait to go again.
Best Little Dive Bar in the Valley! – The bartenders are smokin' hot, the drinks are cheap and strong! They have live bands on the weekends and Karaoke on Sunday and Thursday. I didnt even know about this place cuz its easy to miss, but now its my favorite place to go! Crystal and Misti work Monday and Tuesday nights and are always offering awesome drink specials. They make you feel like a regular here, even if its your first time!!!!
