This dark, narrow bar is your best bet for getting blasted on a budget.. The Scene The tiny space, long and very narrow, may cause bouts of claustrophobia at first, as you slip your way past the bar stools. The jukebox is full of standards, the beer's mostly domestic, and the popcorn's often free. There's always someone to talk to. Just remember, no matter how much you gulp down: This is not the place for brawling or bawling. Cheater's likes its customers demure and drinking.
The Draw The clientele can look a bit rough, but they're friendly enough. The crowd is mostly over 30, although the kids drift in at night to take advantage of strong, cheap cocktails.
