    POSSIBLY THE WORST BAR IN RICHMOND. Do you like roach infested filthy, ugly bars? Then this is your place. The liquor selection sucks. They never have half of the food on the menu. The owner is a super creepy/sleazy lurker. The music is TERRIBLE. You will smell like the place upon leaving it- which is stale cigarettes and MOLD smell. The pool table never works. The bartenders will charge you for drinks you didn't have - then wont give you a print out of your tab. If your in your mid forties having a mid life crisis, POOR,or have no friends and want to be surrounded by scummy people. Plus when I ordered my drink the bartender scooped a roach which was living in the ice. Will never go back. Ever. Oh when I asked the bartender if this was a gay bar she replied No then waddled away. Worst place in all of richmond.
