"Literally 12 steps down from the street" , this "subterranean lair" in Bella Vista offers a "great beer selection" and "decent" bar food at "good prices" , drawing an "interesting neighborhood crowd" for "karaoke" or "Quizzo" nights to "partake in tobacco while watching sports" or just to "get wasted" ; it's a "true dive" , where drinking "feels like a boozy night in your buddy's basement – in a good way."

Awesome beer selection and the staff is super friendly. The food is great as well. They have a pool table that is free on Mondays. It is a smoking bar as well. All-around great South Philly bar. Love this place

The best dive in Philly, hands down. Interesting clientele, excellent beer selection and good food. Avoid if you're afraid of smelling like smoke, but even if you don't it's absolutely worth a visit.

It's a smokers bar and I'm not a smoker. However, that is not affecting my rating. Great beer selection, very friendly staff and positive vibes. Very cozy. Food looked excellent as well. Would go back if I start smoking or they have a smoke free day.
