We've come into the Bitter End a few times during the afternoon--and it is always completely dead. However, the bartenders are charming, helpful, and know how to make a drink. Not being too keen on the crowd this place gets during the evenings (or the bands that generally play there), afternoon is our best time for the Bitter End. They make a very good $8 Bloody Mary, and they'll even turn the volume up on the jukebox for you. A comfy sofa makes it all the better, especially during the day when it's available.
Pros: Good drinks!, A sofa!, Nice Bartenders.
