Well certainly the place with the coolest name Iíve ever had the privilege to enter into the database here, and also it turns out, itís actually a really cool place! The concept and vibe is motorcycle repair + bar, and yeah, they nailed it. There is motorcycle paraphernalia all over the place and the place literally smells like a repair shop. Thereís a wooden bar, chain link fence and a general industrial vibe. It wonít be everyoneís cup of tea but I like it. There is a patio... per se... but its more of a couple chairs for smokers. The food is reasonably priced and the portion size of my $5 garlic herb fries with aioli was huge. Granted we had just eaten somewhere else, two people still couldnít finish them. And they were good. Six taps including Hoegaarden and craft beers. I had a St. George IPA, a local favorite of mine. About 35 bottles, mostly craft, with fairly good prices, as well as six and twelve packs to go at good prices. The bartender, owner and other staff were very chill and great to talk to. This was and will be a music venue as well, but they are currently having a disagreement with the local government. They have a good point, so I signed the petition. I was very much pleasantly surprised by this place and given itís VERY close to Beer Run and across the street from another bar (Market & Meade) itís well worth a stop.
