This place is half bar, half bizarro collection of any and everything you could imagine. Soldier uniforms, matchbooks, toys, airplanes, model ships, random moto-helmets — the list goes on and on. You half expect the eyes of the oil painted portraits to follow you around this museum of the weird, but after drink number two, you feel like just as much of a fixture in the space as the billiards table in the back. While the drinks aren’t exactly cheap, they’re interesting and with astounding variety. The menus alone feel like reference manuals and closing your eyes and simply plunking a finger on a random page won’t disappoint. Don’t expect snappy service as the staff is just as ancient as the space, so a good rule of thumb is to order again about halfway into your first.
