Riverfront Times's Description
Haven't you heard? Lemmons is the new Cheers, where regulars mingle with newbies, hipsters freely embrace an older element, and, of course, everybody knows your name. Lemmons is split into three areas: the music venue, which boasts a raised stage in the back for local and touring acts (and the occasional DJ night); the game area, replete with Foosball, table-shuffle, video games, board games and Lemmons' famous trivia nights; and the basement, which is a haven of billiards and beer. The bar dominates the room, but the surrounding tables provide ample seating to partake in popular Black Thorn pizza.
My wife and I and quite a few of our friends were at Lemmons on 07/19/13. We arrived a bit early to see some bands play and decided to order a few drinks. First complaint is that when I asked for a drink that the bartender did not know, instead of being polite and asking how to make that he flatly said "I don't know how to make that" and went to walk away.

My wife and I and quite a few of our friends were at Lemmons on 07/19/13. We arrived a bit early to see some bands play and decided to order a few drinks. First complaint is that when I asked for a drink that the bartender did not know, instead of being polite and asking how to make that he flatly said "I don't know how to make that" and went to walk away. Ok. I get that. You don't know how to make a certain drink, but how about asking the customer how to make it instead of being rude. After I finally got my drink (rum and coke) and my wife's drink (vodka, sprite and grenadine) we went to sit down and enjoy our drinks. Now I've been to my fair share of bars. I've drank some really bad alcohol, but this is the first time I have been to a bar where it tasted like they literally put water in their alcohol bottles. My rum and coke tasted like a small glass of coke mixed with some water. My wife's drink tasted even worse and when we started talking to our party, we found out one of the girls with us ordered a vodka and sprite and had the same exact problem. So much so that they took it up to the bar to return it and the bartender gave them trouble for saying it didn't taste good. Overall, a very horrible experience. We attempted to contact the bar privately via facebook, but we have received no answer so here we are.
