But I don’t think we’ve ever discussed how cool their “bricks for schools” program is. You pay $150 to get your name on a brick and the money goes to building/maintaining desperately needed schools in various countries. So despite all it’s quirks this in and of itself is a great reason to patronize the bar. It’s a personal favorite of mine to hit before catching a show at the 9:30 club.

  • Thanks for posting this! Yes, the bar is quirky, with their “no standing”, “no loud talking”, and “no martinis” policies, but it’s my all-time favorite bar in the world.

    Kami, the bar owner, insists on being there practically every night they’re open, and will shut the place down for a month about twice a year to travel to other parts of the world to build something. He’s my hero (or very near the top of my list, anyway).

    I can see our brick in this picture!


  • Where can one get some of that exotic pink cement?
