Bars

This is my favorite watering hole. Interesting drinks and a cool vibe. They always play old movies on a couple small TVs above the bar for great ambiance. There is a pool table and a lovely back patio.

Enter in through the lobby and check in with the front desk of the building. They charge a small fee to go inside now but it's totally worth it to see these ruins of a magnificent theatre that has been turned into a parking structure! There's some good ol' American Capitalism for ya!
