This is an upscale bar, and one thing I notice about it is that a lot of older, rich white ladies hang out here. It reminds me of another bar where elderly or mature single women like to hang out. I was alone on New Year's Eve and a bit lonely, and around ten in the evening I decided to go there and have a drink so I wouldn't feel bad. I sat down in a corner at the bar. This lady, probably in her early 60s--gray hair, big lady--started talking with me about sports, and when New Year's started happening she gave me a hug and a kiss on my cheek. Then this other woman across the bar--maybe early 50s--started giving me these looks, and she then asked me to dance. I said sure, and we danced a bit. The early 60s lady introduced me to her daughter, who also happened to be older than me, and the early 50s lady came back and I spent the night hanging out with these older ladies. I'm not really into older women, but for some reason they do find me attractive--more so than younger women. I came out of there feeling like a million bucks. I've been back many times, but not with the same luck, and I've never had any luck here--though I've certainly noticed the ladies.
