Bag hooks? Y ☒ N ☐  

TVs? Y ☒ N ☐
What's on? Probably sporting events

DJs? Y ☒ N ☐
(Sometimes. That vintage car that’s underneath the giant moon inside the bar? That’s a DJ booth in disguise.)

Loud music or background music?
Depends on the time of day.

Essay question: Why should I drink here?  
If you’re not into the heavy-duty party scene that is Wall Street Plaza after hours, but you dig the idea of drinking in what kind of looks like an old auto-repair shop mashed up with a moonshiner’s basement, this is a perfect place during happy hour. Or, really, up until about 10 p.m., when it starts to fill up with the party-hopping crowd. If you are into the party scene, you’re at Wall Street Plaza – by midnight, all of the bars around you will be bumpin’.
