Rhythm and blues fans on the West Side know all about this eccentric little pub. The decor is relatively simple and the origin of the name is an unsolved mystery, but the bands that play here are always worth a listen. No one will mind if you feel the urge to let your feet do the talking, but dancing typically takes a back seat to simple enjoyment of the music and good, friendly conversation. The pub is open daily and has a solid following in the 20-to-40 age group. Live bands typically play every night except Mondays. A small cover charge may apply for some bands, but admission is often free.
