This cozy retro haunt makes a top place to unwind. It is one of the smallest night-spots in town but offers plenty of variety. To blend with the colorful decor many regulars like to dress up in their 70s gear. Getting through the door can be a problem wearing training shoes and denim, but once inside, the mood is quite laid back. Local short films are screened once a month. The bar serves a variety of cocktails, and anyone with a taste for imported beer will be charmed by the choice of brews available.
