    People giving bad reviews of a place that hasn’t even opened is laughable…likely people who nobody would want in their bar anyway. I’ve been in that space when it was T Murray’s and it’s a great spot with an up and downstairs bar. Can’t wait to check it out!

    Thanks for the honest feedback on both Novak’s and this bar that you’ve provided in your extensive posting history here.

    I’m sure Jenny appreciates her friend supporting her new effort anonymously, John.

    When I think dive bar, I think sous vide.

    That was not meant to be left in the description it was for internal purposes, accidental over site.

    <P>I hope this means a smaller but better crowd for the High Beck. The d-bags who want a “dive-themed” bar can go to Three Sheets, and the normal people who appreciate an actual divey bar with great bartenders and passable food can stay at the High Beck.</P>

    <P>That seems pretty unnecessarily harsh and mean-spirited. Especially to direct toward a place that hasn’t even opened yet. </P>

    I wasn’t trying to review the place, but rather to comment on the spirit behind it. I bristle at the idea of a “dive bar concept” and the conscious transformation of the space to a “lowbrow” bar. If you tell me you’re trying to create something divey, the result can only be artificial and contrived. Time and clientele make a dive bar, not carefully-curated furnishings (not too fancy, now!) or some cheap canned beer.

    A concept bar of any kind is nothing more than a brand, and it will run out of steam when the gimmicks wear thin or something newer/shinier comes along.

    I forget who said it many years ago, but right after Skully’s opened in the Short North there was a comment along the lines of “Skully’s is to Rock and Roll as The Olive Garden is to Italy.” That pretty much sums up my feelings of themed bars – they’re caricatures.

    It does sound like Three Sheets isn’t trying super-hard to make itself look or feel like a stereotypical dive bar, so I’ll back off my d-bag comment from June. I might even actually review the place, now that it’s open. But I’m sticking to my assertion that d-bags prefer “themed” bars over the real things.

    But I’m sticking to my assertion that d-bags prefer “themed” bars over the real things.

    I think I understand what you’re trying to say, but I wholeheartedly disagree due to the wide range of themes and the executions of said themes.

    Grass Skirt is a theme bar (tiki) and I’d say it’s not full of d-bags (when I’ve gone).
    16-Bit is a theme bar (arcade) and … see above.
    Denmark has a lounge-theme going on.
    Melt has a indie-rocker/hipster theme.
    Surly Girl has the cowgirl theme.
    Kingmakers certainly has a theme.
    Lots of bars have a gastropub theme these days.

    I’d say it’s more likely than not that a bar owner has a specific branding idea in mind when launching their business. Some might be more kitschy, and some might be more subtle, but every bar has a theme to it.

    Planning to be a dive-bar from day one might be something you have to grow into or “earn” so to speak, but it doesn’t automatically make the place bar or good. I’d argue that Whitt’s End Saloon has the same theme going on. And the recently closed Hal & Al’s before it.

    Yeah, that Skully’s place was a flash in the pan… only been around for 12 years (so far).

    Skully’s does continue to smell like teen spirit as well.

    Olive Garden has been a brand for more than 30 years and there are more than 800 of them. Caricatures can last, but longevity doesn’t make them any more authentic.
