this place is bad
Bengees Downtown

It's an honest, old fashion bar. Bad music on the Jukebox,$1 beers,$2.50 shots, a pool table, darts, shuffelboard, pinball and the walls are painted in memorial to the Marines that never came back.

Bengees isn't for the younger crowd and you wont find many single women in the bar, but it is a safe place to have a few drinks and some great conversation. Smoking is restricted to the outdoor patio, but there is a sheltered space and you can take your drink with you.

The best bartender in the joint is Herbie; a gruff looking old timer that always has a joke ready and would card his mother if she looked under 40. If you need anything from love advice or a good mechanic, Herbie's the guy to talk to.

Bengees is the type of place Bukowski and Hemmingway would have drank.

let me tell you back in the day when the old man was alive that bar was the shit! you could go there and drink cheap and not worry unless you started something. but i will say as a white female i never had a problem there. maybe because my man was very well known and i didn't start crap. my best friend was a hooker and i had a good job at the mall. i hung out there after work 5 or 6 days a week for years and those were the days. after benny died it went downhill stripclub and all!
