Arrived at five, it wasn't busy. The service was very friendly and attentive. The prices are well within reason for the quality. Not close to my job, I wish it was.

This is a nice little bar. They have a good atmosphere and nice bartenders. They have been around for a long time and have always been a nice place to go and have a beer.

I have passed this bar a few times, and happy I went in last weekend. Great ambiance to meet friends or a casual date. Wonderful selection of drinks to wet your whistle, from beers to fancier mixed drinks. The food options were good. We nibbled on sweet potato fries, which were better here than they were at the steak house I happened to swing by earlier that day. There are so many great spots in Bakersfield , but this is one many could classify as their go to spot.Tina EnglishTina Marie EnglishKristina Marie Taylor. Fullerton, CA • Newport Beach, CA.

Got there about three, it wasn't crowded. I've had nothing but pleasant experiences here and plan to keep coming back. It has a nice interior. They have a lot of great reviews for a reason.

Good times. They now have AMI (no Touch Tunes). Its an old lady party early in the day, they're great though, their conversations are centered on weather, recent deaths, traffic, a bit of gossip etc. Feel like I'm at a family gathering, sitting with the aunt's (Sandy, Pam, Nancy), and my grandma (Jewell- that's her name, she's no gem). Anyway, gotta love the place, been here since high school, and the day bartender is great, once she gets to know you. Not sure anything eventful happens here, doubtful, as the VIP still flys under the radar. Check it out.

The bar tender asked for an ID for a friend of mine, even though we go all the time and he was clearly over 21. I know it's their job, but if they know us . Then why?

Cool place to go and have a few drinks, or way too many. Doesn't seem to be a specific type of crowd, a little bit of everyone there. Kinda cool.

Quirky, "old school" lounge with vinyl chairs and a dark atmosphere. You feel like you stepped back in time. But the drinks were reasonable, and the staff is friendly.

Reminds me of a 70's bar. All that's missing is the pinball machine, disco ball, and bell bottoms. Atmosphere is not overbearing so it's a nice place to chill for the night.
