No Thanks! – If you like over priced drinks, a limited liquor selection, and an obnoxious drunken owner you'll love this place. As for the atmosphere...cold and depressing. Take it from someone who has given this bar several chances, spend your hard earned money where it will be appreciated.
Last night me and 4 friends went to hang out and watch another friend of ours DJ karaoke. He started his show and had an equipment problem, which put the show on hold for about 15 minutes. Once the issue was fixed the show went on, and everyone seemed to be having a good time. We ordered food from their very generic bar menu. The "Coyle Fries", a disappointing knock of of the awesome Parker Fries served up the street, came served with cheese flavored water for dipping. The burger, no big surprise, mirrors the decor....pieced together and lack luster. As we ate I needed a new beer. Apparently, there was something wrong with the CO2 and I had to wait about 15 minutes, until it was fixed for that drink.
By the end of the night the owner, "Val", was obnoxiously drunk singing karaoke with patrons. I got up to sing a song and she must have been upset that it was not her singing again. She started talking about me to the patrons so loudly that I could hear her. After everything wrapped up Val started talking to the karaoke company owner about the delay at the start of the night. Mind you she had him standing at the bar, in front of everyone sitting at the bar. Maybe this was because she needed to use the bar to hold her up being so drunk. No matter what the reason it showed a complete lack of professionalism. After an hour of her drunken babbling she told the guy she "didn't think she should have to pay anything." WHAT!
Hey cheapskate if that's how everything works I don't think I should have to pay my bar bill because I had to wait for your CO2 to get fixed...
One saving grace for this dive, the bartender Teresa. She was personable and accommodating all night, even trying to deal with Val's belligerence.
