Where We Watch says: Place is a Michigan joint in the fall (insert 2008 joke here), and is a chill bar on a stretch with a few other underrateds, i.e. Telephone Bar (not to mention the entirety of the Village several blocks away). Also has some underrated (apparently that's the word of the day) trivia contests that pop up unexpectedly here and there. Give it a shot. You won't be disappointed.
