why don't you have barstools?

Our bar doesn’t have bar stools because we want to encourage a friendly atmosphere between customers. What’s better than grabbing a beer and standing next to a total stranger who turns out to be extremely interesting?

Depending on the desired day of the week and time of the event, we may not be able to honor all requests. Monday through Thursday before 11:30 am and Sunday evenings after 6:30 are much easier for us to book, because we are closed to the public at those times.
