On my first visit, the place was quiet being a Thursday night before 8 pm. A few folks on the back patio, a group of noisy guys at a table, and a few "locals" bellied up to the bar, including me I guess.
I ordered an O'Dells IPA, not inexpensive at $5 for an "American" pint (16 ounces versus 19.2 in an "Imperial", British, pint), but not outrageous, with a head so big that a Brit would seethe. It was cold and wet, not room temperature like a traditional English IPA would be, but hey ... THIS IS LAWRENCE ... WE ARE IN KANSAS DOROTHY ... Heeee heeee heeee heeee, I'll get you my pretty AND YOUR LITTLE DOG TOO!
The bartender, a 30-something woman in jeans and t-shirt named Heather, was quiet yet nice and the only person to actually acknowledge my existence. A few neon signs, a dirty floor, a couple of pool tables and dart boards, the place is a bit divey, but isn't that the way bars should be?
I'll be updating this review as the summer languishes and I become more familiar with Lawrence's public houses.
