VIBE Small two-level bar with a patio out front tends to attract a university crowd, but one that's more artsy and less frat boy than the Brunswick House across the street. Weekends feature various special events, from indie rock dance parties to jungle. It's owned by the Future Bakery next door but is basically a separate business.
VALUE Aimed at students, it's pretty affordable. A domestic beer will run you $4.25 and a bar rail $3.75, with drink specials throughout the week. Sometimes there's a cover on weekends, but it's rarely more than $5.
BATHROOMS The washrooms are in the basement. They're pretty small and a bit grimy. Expect a lineup on busy nights, even for the boys'.
LINEUP There's not usually much of a wait getting in. If you see a big lineup, there's a good chance they're at capacity and waiting for people to leave.
