Unlike all the chain stores along the Southport Corridor, this place has some character. It’s been a tavern, speakeasy, brothel, a betting parlor, and now it’s a bar with six pool tables and four bowling lanes. They serve decent bar food, have a long draft beer list, and it’s a good spot to keep in mind if you’re looking for something to do besides drink.
