It ain't a hole in the wall, really. Just a good place to drink good beer. They've got a really good selection. The one thing is their food. It ain't so good. But they've got good beer, and Whisk(e)y, too.
I'm much more of a "find a place I like and stick to it guy". Generally speaking, if I say "the bar" these days, I'm talking about Freeman's Pub, which is about 3 blocks from the house. It's cool, the only time they ever ask what I want to drink is if they ever (rarely) run out of what I usually drink. They just bring me good tasty beer when I walk in.
