I've been going to the Bench Warmer for close to 20 years and in that time it has changed very little. It's definetly a neighborhood regular's kind of place. Newcomers are welcome though, if you're female maybe a little too welcome as there are a few hard core drunks that pester the ladies. There's darts and a pool table but you won't find any food, dancing or live music. Thank God they got rid of the karaoke, it was brutal. The bench is a good place to go for a drink and relaxing.
Pros: Safe, quiet.
Cons: Quiet, some drunks.
