You’d think your typical dive bar patron wouldn’t exactly be the Yelp-reviewer type (or someone with high expectations), but the following reviews prove otherwise. Honestly, what did you expect here people?
Review: A dog was behind the bar as the bouncer got drunk.
Location: Las Vegas
Review: Maybe it should be called the double frown saloon. No, I do not want to drink ass juice out of a miniature toilet. There was barely anyway here when we came around 12:30am. I like dive bars but I guess I was expecting more people to be at this bar. The cab driver on the way home asked us, “why in the hell would you guys go there?!” Exactly.

Review: We came here to see one of our fave performers and as I was reading the reviews I was honestly scared. Almost every review mentioned how rude or disrespectful the bartenders were. I planned on drinking and I didn’t want to get into it with any of them. …. We eyed our table, went to the bar and prepared ourselves to battle the bartenders.

Review: I went in with a group of 10 people around 9:00 pm on a Saturday night. We knew it was a local hangout and “A Dive Bar.” With that said, as I was asking my friends what they would like to drink to place an order the waitress said I was taking too long, she sat down, lit a cigarette and would not serve us. We had just finished a great dinner and were all in a great mood. This bar and waitress couldn’t have put a bigger damper on the night for us. How do you stay in business with some of the worst service I have ever seen? If I could give this place 0 stars I would!

Review: If you’re looking for a disease or a bar fight, this a great place. If you have a strong immune system or good health plan then have at anything on tap or the kitchen. Other than that, I suggest sticking to bottles/cans or packed items. This place smelled like a thousand years of booze, cigarettes, sweat and regret. There is smoking in the back area of the bar that floats into the rest of the place. Your feet will stick to the filthy carpet and you’ll stick to almost everything else, and the restroom is even worse. Much of the clientele in this dive bar were over-served and very likely suffering from alcohol addiction. While this place smelled disgusting these patrons had stronger pungent odours, were loud and lewd and it was 4.30pm on a Friday. But their falling down and sexually harassment of women who happened to be seated next to them didn’t slow down the bartender serving up doubles to these people.
Review: There are no more “Dive Bars” in Boston. You want to go to a dive in Boston? Pick up a 22oz. and find a bench somewhere.
Review: I go here when I want to forget the years of bad decisions I’ve made while simultaneously adding to them.
Review: No Neil Young on the jukebox. Would have even given three stars had they stooped to some CSN&Y.

Review: i love trying out new cocktails, but this place sucked so bad that my group and I left without ordering anything. First of all, no servers to take your order. Second of all “its cash only” which is weird. Third of all, the bartender was so awful and rude. In order to order drinks, we had to go to the bar to order. The bartender took other people’s orders first (even though we were there first). Im thinking maybe they were regulars but that doesn’t justify what she did. She was making a drink and i asked her if the big cocktail (i cant remember the name…volcano blast or something??) is delicious and she responded “only if you like it” and i told her that it was my first time there and she said “i need to make this drink first and then ill tell you” which was very rude. Its not my first time being to a bar or ordering a drink, but that was definitely the worst bartender ive ever met.

Review: I sat down in a booth section with 6 or 7 friends. We were periodically feeding money into the jukebox—you have to pay if you want to hear any music or else the place is silent, no streaming music.
When a friend and I got up to use the ladies room, I noticed the sticky white substance on the back of my dress! The duct taped red seats left a long visible thick white line on across my backside (as well as stains on some of my friends clothing as well). Mortified, I hurried into the restroom and tried to clean off the substance, but it was no use.
Review: Terrible atmosphere… poor lighting, awful music, strange music videos, weird halloween zombie bodies laying around near the bathroom. Plus apparently they are a “purist” liquor bar so they won’t make any cocktails. Definitely will not be going back.
Review (same bar): Don’t get their wine! It was horrible and the bartender still charged me for that after just one sip! She insisted it was a new bottle while it tasted vinegary. Just horrible wine selection!!
Review: I went to this bar today.. biggest regret. Do not go here. Lol i literally went here with my bf and another couple. A girl blowing up monkeys got very nasty beyonddd nasty with us meanwhile we were just looking not touching anything. i never been to a more trashy bar in my life. Do not go here.
