I live very close to the bar, and as much as I want to say it's awful, I can't. I've been here for four years and never had a problem. Yeah, A LOT of strange people go in there, but aside from an arbitrary loud conversation during a walk home you won't have any issues. They are very good about not disturbing the neighborhood. You will have more problems with drunk kids coming back from Main street. They are obnoxious. Brickhouse is ok with me.
