That's what so sucky sad about it now.
Because a beer can be a beer can be a beer so a bar is a bar...all bars really have got that's distinguishing is thier "vibe" or gimmick.
The Bar used to be the "secret hideout" behind Jingles and had a really dangerous looking thug armed with a gun "sneaking" around on the roof.
It was stimulating and bizarre and a little disturbing---which is what made it cool but what probably got it torn down, ala the big dead bug sign on E Wash.
So now it's just a bar that it next door.
