We’ve been a casual bar and kitchen in Midtown Sacramento. We have a welcoming staff, a laid back vide and are proud to serve you delicious food made from scratch, cold craft beer and stiff cocktails. We host weekly Wednesday trivia nights and popular annual events like our Hot Toddy Competition. Open until 2 am everyday, we serve lunch, happy hour, dinner and weekend brunch. Come by yourself, bring your friends or bring your grandma–everyone is welcome to grab a bite to eat and stay for the DJs.

Come in and meet your future ex.
