WHY HERE: You could enter this eclectic bar by yourself and be purely entertained by the surroundings. Every inch seems to have something stuck to it, and chances are if you asked one of the regulars about any of the objects dangling there they would have story to go with it. This isn't surprising given the bar has been a favored neighborhood watering hole since it opened in 1951. WHY NOW: Play some pool, watch a game, and throw back a few beers. That's really all you need to have a good time at this laid-back spot.
