Bias-free bar with popular karaoke, live music and (yes!) poetry nights
Recently redecorated with comfortable booths and tables. Often really mixed crowd, older/younger, men/women, queer, straight and in-between. Karaoke by Dog and Pony Sound on Wednesday, Friday and Sunday nights is "Ottawa's best threesome" and is always popular, but you can always get a turn at the mic. No frills, but often fun place to hang out with friends.

    Stopped in for the drag show on a Thursday night in September 2015. I was immediately welcomed by everyone in the place - including the bartender and the performers! The regulars were so nice, inviting me to sit with them for the show and having great conversations. Tony that bartender was fantastic. Street parking was available, and the club is easy to get to. It's a little small, but that adds to the cozy and friendly atmosphere. If I find myself in Ottawa again, I'll definitely be back.
