Ya during the day I would encourage you to check it out. At night, I might take a pass. I wouldn't take my lady in there after 9:00 pm when things start to get going. I mean it's not like we are at a bar in Syria or something but the potential for issues is simply much increased. I never did have a problem there but I am a fairly amicable guy who is a fan of dive bars to be sure. But when you go to those places you just can't act like an asshole or think you are better than those who are in there. That is gonna get you in trouble fast. But once again, during the daytime when I was there it was like a loud frat party. It was so crazy I took a video on my phone and sent it to my friend and he was there in 20 minutes and we stayed all day. It feels like I may be making too much of this but I just want to share what my experiences are so people have the information to do with it as they please. As @KKB put it, the neighbourhood is just fine but that building can bring extra excitement.
