I have dropped by this Long Beach establishment several times through the years - the new ownership made some changes here a few years ago. I am far from being a regular customer as it is some 10-15 miles from home. I do thoroughly enjoy the bar's atmosphere and the bartender's are always friendly and helpful. The new owner (not new anymore) is very likeable and funny man - who makes you feel welcome. It is a small bar, but thats a plus for me and my friend. It can be very intimate or just the opposite depending on the crowd and time of day. I have always enjoyed this long-time drinking establishment and if in the area and the mood strikes me I am there! Parking is a problem however. But it is for every business on Second Street in Long Beach. The hassle is worth it.
