So, did the person who discovered this bar ride on a horse with no name? It’s reminiscent of the old US cowboys. Just imagine a gun-toting, horse-riding, cigar-chewing man bursting through the salon doors. Then, a lady in red awaits, ready to provide him with the pleasure he needs. You certainly won’t see the scene now, but what awaits you are live music, cold booze, and mouth-watering fares. This was Edgar Allan Poe’s bar of choice. There must have been something about the food that inspired this dark poet to write the classics that he’s known for today, and that’s saying a lot because the man reeks of talent.
