We had beers and food here. The food was good for bar food. The beer was good too. Good atmosphere. The guy bartender was funny and nice. Definitely would come back here.

Went here for a show and had some drinks. Drinks were cheap and the music was good and loud. Decent venue for small bands and followings. Located right on Butler Street. Tropidelic is the best!

Visit this casual, cozy bar to enjoy live blues music and you'll think you were in Greenwich Village NYC! The mural around the stage was sprayed by a graffiti artist- amazing! The food is typical bar food but come her for the live music/atmosphere and...More
