We came here after initially trying out another bar (captain blacks) and feeling really unwanted and uncomfortable.
We walked into The Hillside Bar and Josh, who was tending the bar, greeted us. He was super friendly and took care of us! We liked him a lot. He was a nice guy.
The music is quirky and random. The atmosphere was nice and clean. The bar is split into two sides, one with the bar and one with the pool table. I didn't explore the pool table side much but it all seemed chill. The crowd was laid back and a mixture of sorts. Mind you, this was on a Wednesday night. I cannot vouch for a warm Friday night but I'm sure the whole area gets packed.
Overall, I would recommend this bar if your looking for cheap drinks, a regular bar crowd and some pizza to munch on. It's not gourmet gluten free vegan locally sourced organic artisan pizza, but it was cheap and hit the spot.
