      Rainbow Cactus should
      change their name to "Gay Pricks." Very uncomfortable bar. Bartender was overly kind when she actually talked - it seemed fake. The four patrons of the bar were in a tight group. After giving it a fair chance I decided to leave. The patrons all gave me a nice send-off by shouting sarcastic goodbyes at me. It's a shame that this has to be such a lousy place because it's near to where I work and thought it would be a nice place to just mellow after work. Not so. Don't think twice about it. Don't go to this one.

      very quiet place
      I live in the neighborhood. Went there one night and saw 3 customers sitting right next to each other plus 1 bartender, no music, no sound from TV, and no one was talking. I think they were enjoying a quiet night at bar, so I left quietly.

      Seems to be slipping away
      Except for Karaoke Fridays, the only car I usually see here is the bartender's. No music unless someone puts money in the jukebox, so usually you can pay top dollar to drink alone, surrounded by wood paneling and watching TV. The regulars seem to be dropping by much less frequently, probably because a night out there can add up with the new drink prices and limited specials.

      Friendly neighborhood bar
      I've only been here during Happy hour. It's like family in here, dark, quiet old tavern, friendly service, mixed male/female crowd, not much to do or look at.
