[CLOSED] became Bar East

Under new management, the only thing Australian about this bar might be the occasional kangaroo rat running from behind the bar. Once a teen haven, this bar has been busted more times than Robert Downey Jr. and generally serves a post-college/post-first-time-offender crowd. The new owners have been too lazy to change the name, and it’s anybody’s guess how long this place’ll last in it’s current incarnation. Oh, if you haven’t heard “Mr. Boombastic” or I” Saw the Sign, ” you soon will. [MF]
