Bar near Olympic and Vermont for buddy's get together?

heywolfie1015 Sep 14, 2010 10:27 AM

We are taking a buddy out this weekend to celebrate some good news and are planning on dinner at Park's BBQ, just north of Olympic on Vermont. Any suggestions for a good bar near there? I'm looking for a solid pre-dinner place with good drinks at relatively sane prices, and an atmosphere where we can shoot the sh*t for an hour or two before heading over to Park's.

    +1 for the Prince- think of it as a dive inhabiting what was once probably a very fancy place. A bottle of JW Black Label is about $90, and comes with a bit of food to snack on. They also have half bottles and single drinks.
