great 40's spot – I guess it's not a coincidence that I happen to love all of 213Ventures' bars. Broadway bar is spacious and has two levels, making it great for groups. The bartenders are great, and they have a good selection of specialty drinks available.
no cover, cheapish drinks...watmorecouldyouwant? – eclectic crowd...but the best part...no lines and no cover...no pretentious asses making you feel bad about yourself...just fun and good times...will be back for sure
Racistas Beware: Good drinks. Good prices. Low key. Great Time. – The broadway bar is perfect to meet up with friends, listen to some music in a low pressure type setting. The crowd is diverse and friendly. Racistas would dislike the bar and should avoid it all costs. The crowd is more progressive and colorful. The drinks are reasonably priced and parking is conveniently located next door (free).
I don't reccommend parking on the street. Wednesdays are good if you like reggae/dub. NO cover and $3 dollar beers all night.
Downtown's Best Kept Secret – I made my first visit last night before a show and loved everything about it but most importantly the service. The bartender was awesome. This is the type of place where you go hang out and have a good time without any drama. Don't go there if you have the "I-want-to-see" or "I-want-to-be-seen" attitude. No one here cares. Drink and be merry. Period. Will definitely be back. Did I mention the service was awesome? Oh yeah, if you're hungry they will provide you with menus from two local pizza joints that deliver to BB. Great drinks, customer service, atmosphere. It's great!
Great Drinks, Great Price – I've been to this bar twice and the service is always great. The prices are great and the quality of the drinks are even better. Great atmosphere but would be even better if they opened the upstairs. People are also great that they're cool but not trendy. It feels like a sophisticated neighborhood bar where people are just cool, laid back and service is great. Love it!
Great New Bar – Cedd and Ricki did a great job at this new downtown venue. The bartenders have been culled from all over and are very friendly. There is a great happy hour and parking is free next door after 7 pm.
good times – I had a lot of fun at this place. It wasn't too crowded, but there were enough people. It was classy, not trendy. A nice layout, a balcony for smoking. The music wasn't too loud so having a conversation wasn't difficult. It's a good place to meet people. It had its own parking spot, but at the time I went it was crowded-- but at least there was enough street parking (at least I could see my car from the balcony if anyone's worried about that area of town). I had a really great time there and I'd go there again.
Citysearch Editorial Review – The second in a string of Historic Core district bars from nightspot magnate Cedd Moses (Golden Gopher, Liquid Kitty), this casual-but-classy cocktail lounge is conveniently located adjacent to the restored Orpheum Theatre and residential lofts. The cool 40s-style decor merges the building's historic architecture with a sexy, modern aesthetic. The view from atop the winding staircase is the best in the entire place.
Cool place with a neat round bar. Upstairs was closed when we went(Saturday night no less) and the place was comfortably occupied when we left at 11PM. The beer selection is weak at best, but they did have Stella Artois on tap although not the glass. The CD jukebox was packed with classics and hipster tunes. Overall another cool downtown bar that will no doubt take off as more people find it.
