    Cheap drinks. Two floors with different music. 1 patio out front and two on the second floor. Live music.

    Their food is REALLY good. We always surprise ourselves with how good what we ordered was.

    If you see an artist/band at this venue, you must go early & get a front seat b/c. very narrow stage. If you aren't at front, it's very hard to see the stage.

    The only time it's worth it to come here is when they are playing hardcore ambient and African drum-step.

    Great patio in the summer but terrible service year round. Avoid the open mic comedy nights.

    The Central: Annex bar restaurant and live music venue, splendid vibe, overcooked food, nil desserts avail, poor choice for dinner, 2/5

    Stick to burgers or anything fried > pastas and pad Thai a little risky.

    Food came, and was amazing. But don't come here unless you have a few hours to chill, and aren't starving.

    Treats bands like meat. Be warned if you're thinking of playing here. They'll cram 10 bands in one night resulting in nowhere to sit. Service is horrible too, pretty much have to serve yourself.
