Decent Bar with the Ego of a Better Bar. Arnies SRO has a few flat screen TVs that always have the game on (+), plenty of bareable seating (+), and crowded bar space (+/-). It seems like a good bar to go in for a drink or two, but I wouldn't want to get caught up in the crowd. Don't fall for the canned reviews. Arnies SRO has a lot of positives, but friendly is one thing this bar is not. The bartenders (male and female +) are what comes across as suspicious of new people. The clientel is clique-ish. As with any bar, you can decern between the regulars and the people who just wandered in. If you want service, be the former. This bar wants to be high class, but it's really not. They have natural light on tap for heaven sake. When I went in the women's toilet was broken and the impromptu "unisex" bathroom had one battered toilet. The pool table and cues (+) are in sad shape (-) and run by the confrontational regulars (- -). What I'm saying: Arnies SRO is a decent bar with the ego of a better one.
Friendly & Fun Neighborhood Bar. Arnie's is one of the best bars I've ever stepped foot in. Even if you're a stranger to this place, and you don't know anyone, youll still feel at home. The owners and the staff are friendly. The drinks are very affordable. The cocktail pours are more than fair. They have the atmosphere of a little bit of everything you'd want in a bar wrapped up in a small two-story establishment. There is an Irish owner, good beer selection, full bar, a pool table, darts (electronic and standard), video games (Golden Tee), two big screen TVs, and a great jukebox. There is a mix of all ages here with mostly attractive people that hang out/work there. Arnies gets an A+ and two thumbs up from me!
