Reviews for Army & Air Force Exchange Service

"Timmy" the door man will always be nothing more than just that. A door man. Him and the bald guy working the door took my cash and then refused entry because my friends were too "intoxicated"... Mind you it was 10pm and we had just got done have no more than 2 drinks at dinner.Hope you see this Timmy ??

Wish I could give negative stars - Finally got the bartenders attention after 5 minutes of standing at the bar (this was at 11pm before the bar gets packed btw). I asked for a drink that ran across the screen as $3.25. When the bartender came back with the drink, he said it was $6.75. I asked why is that, he said the price changed. I said I ordered it when it was still on the screen for $3.25. He shrugged and said $6.75. I said how often do the prices change, he said every 3 full review

This place is kinda fun! It has the same vibe as most of the other Court Ave bars, but its main gimmick is the "stock ticker" of drink pricing. I don't have a degree in economics, so I don't know exactly how it works, but the prices of drinks fluctuate in some capacity over the course of the night. I assume it's a supply/demand sort of thing, but whom could know. Either way, fun gimmick and you can definitely drink here.
