After the disappointment of the Butterfly Social Club myself and a few others headed over to Richard’s. At a glance it seemed like a regular dive bar, but boy was I wrong! This place was great. The crowd was diverse, even with the old Italian men all gussied up in their fine suits and gold chains. Richard has several beer coolers full of cases of beer for the road. They have a bar list hanging above the bar. There was an awesome jukebox with all the favorites, the walls were complete with Rat Pack memorabilia & black & white prints of gangster films. The bar is fully stocked with everything from PBR to one of my favs Stella Artois. You can even order up a hard-boiled egg for only 75 cent a pop. Sweet! Richard’s is one of my new beloved neighborhood bars. If you are in the area stop by Richard’s and say hey!
