The older sister to our bar of the year runner-up, Eagle Eye, this homey pub would be more at home in the industrial inner east side than in the wilds of deep-south Mt. Scott. There’s still a bit of the grit from before owner Erin Wagner took over this spacious 82nd Avenue pub after previous tenant Becken’s Winning Hand Tavern was busted selling drugs inside the bar. It’s still the kind of place where the men’s room urinal might be marked out of service with a trash bag and duct tape, but it also has a soup of the day and a serious drink program. MARTIN CIZMAR.
