You can feel good about drinking at this cozy and unpretentious spot because this place has a lot of heart. It sponsors all manner of AIDS benefits, community involvement, and other good works. One whole wall is dedicated to the altruistic projects of 75-year-old owner Linda Pencost. A pool table, pinball and piano, which is used occasionally to produce live music, are other great reasons to visit.
I like this place a lot; it's very neighborhoody, compact but rarely crowded, relaxed and inexpensive. The scene is very blended hipster/homos, which can be a pretty good thing, but sometimes, the hip thing can be a bit trying (or trying too hard). The music is snappy -- interpol to aislers set -- indie music. Expect college students, generally white, generally from suburban families. It's very non-threatening. The drinks are a steal and the service is great; the bar staff are pleasant and unpretentious; it's the perfect foil to the Beauty Bar. My only complaint is that it's a smoke-easy. While that can be a nice oasis for smokers, it can get rather bothersome for someone like me who just quit a month ago.
