Had a blast 12/17/16 listening to So Big. It was a freezing cold night, but people were having a great time singing and dancing to awesome music. The food was good, but service at the tables near the dance floor was slow.

It's a bar named for a local and legendary rocker in a factory district, so what would you expect? It's loud, the bar is packed with a quickly tipsy working class crowd. But the dining area is in a separate wing of this open-v shaped...More
