Was here on a recent Friday afternoon. The place is loaded with character and a few characters as well. Friendly place overall and I met a few resident artists who helped me select a dinner place and other attractions.

This is one of my favorite bars in the world. It is so comfortable for anyone to walk into and hang out. The decor is fascinating bits of cape history all over the place. Juke box is awesome.

Best Dive Bar in P-Town! It's a must... my only complaint is if you need to take a poop in private this is not the place! Awesome bar though.

What this bar has is history and it's a favorite of locals. At least, two drinks are required to level out the floor.
