Thanks to a metal-clad exterior that sticks out like a Clockwork Orange thumb in this ho-hum stretch of west Belmont Central, this hot, young Polish haunt is impossible to miss. Less Weed Street nightclub and more Exit metal dude hangout, the bar has an interior covered with intricate, high-quality metalwork from a local Polish artist. Add pool and foosball tables, a great jukebox and cheap drinks, and you just might start checking out real estate in the area.
