This bar is all about simplicity. Cheap but strong and drinks, interesting crowd, amazing vinyl only dj's playing dance songs you think you know but you really don't, and a great bouncy floor from all the people dancing to New Order late into the night. Nothing fancy and it's really dark. I go there way too much.
This is my favorite music venue in the city. It's on a unassuming strange corner, has the perfect amount of dirty-ness, good beer, and great music. I've spent many nights here watching some of my favorite bands.
I'm usually too busy to do this but when I can, getting out to the lakefront at night is truly one of the best things ever. There's something about the night sky, the water, wind and the city behind you that calms everything down.
