Everyone has their favorite neighborhood bar. Mine is Bamboo Cafe.
Bamboo is located in the upper Fan district, has great food (open for lunch, dinner, and Sunday brunch), a nice beer selection (draft and bottles), the same bar and waitstaff for at least ten years, a gorgeous dark wood bar and booths, chalkboards in the bathrooms, familiar regulars, a great soundtrack, and dim lighting. And to top it all off? It's also rumored to have the latest 'last call' in the neighborhood.
