I was raised in the area and had not been to Monte's Bar in a Many years. I was telling the person that I was with to expect an old dive that has a comfortable feel. I was pleasantly surprised when I walked through the door, the inside had been redone. Brighter and Cleaner, with still the welcoming feeling. They put in a kitchen where the stage used to be and sell pizza's. we headed for the pool tables. They have 3 pool tables there, There is a sign on the wall. ""Free Pool, Darts, Jukebox"" ""All The time"" ....I was told that, ""yes, the pool is free!"" we played a couple games, plugged in a bunch of songs on the jukebox and had a great time. Monte's will see lots more of me in the near future... I have been telling everyone about it that I come across. the Bartender was awesome as well... Thank you!
