Essay question: Why should I drink here?  
This bar is a clean, well-lighted place where you can catch up with a friend for a post-work libation ($3 Tullamore Dew and flavored vodkas during happy hour, folks), bring a co-worker for a post-work bitch session or meet a Tinder date for the first time if you don’t want to give up too much information about yourself. The atmosphere is basic bitch (we mean that in a good way), which is sometimes all you want a bar to be.
