Decades is a place for all generations!
Decades is truly the "cheers"-type establishment, where everybody knows your name. The minute you walk through the doors of this unassuming, open-armed atmosphere, you will instantly find yourself engaging in conversations with professional pianists, restaraunt managers, retirement counsellors, financial adivisors, physicians, nurses, lawyers, waiters and retirees.
The drinks are no stronger than those you might mix while entertaining friends in your own home. The prices are fair and the bartenders are as diverse as the patrons themselves. Each personality is multi-faceted and everyone can find someone with whom they relate.
Service may not always be at lightning speed, but that is only because the barkeep wouldn't dream of cutting you off mid-sentence, simply to rush a sloppy drink to an impatient dolt who cannot wait to medicate himself. Quality comes first at this bar. Quality in the libations served and quality in the relationships nurtured.
Whatever you fancy, you can find it here. Play billiards, join a dart league, sing karaoke, enter a chili cook-off, play a video trivia game or listen to the music playing on the jukebox...one of the best in town, in my opinion.
Everyone feels right at home, black or white, gay or straight, republican or democrat, male or female, young or old, all are welcome and all are treasured.
There is plenty of free parking and an outside, front porch patio allows conversation friendly seating for those who choose to smoke.
Many restaraunts deliver right to the bar, and cab companies are quick and responsive in the event you need a safe ride home.
Decades is not your kind of place if you are looking for an anonymous, faceless, lonely place to drown your sorrows. If, however, you are looking for some friendship, conversation, a place to belong and a safe place to be yourself, look no further. Decades is my favorite bar. Hope to see you there real soon!
