okay, so i hate their bar chairs, BUT... the bartenders are fantastic - great service, drinks mixed right, and great company if you need it, and they have a lot of great dj's spinning all sorts of stuff. and although when you first walk in the design screams 'hipster bar', they designed and built it all themselves... they've also put a a lot of effort into being an unobtrusive, welcoming establishment in what is predominantly a spanish neighborhood - not only do the locals pop in, they dj, too. if you're lucky, someone will get a little dance floor started in the back, or you'll get a taste of one of the bartender's special collection bottles.
Pros: great prices/happy hr, off-center locale, supports local peeps
Cons: ugh, these chairs!
