This place is legendary. So much character and history. The staff is super friendly as well. Stays open real late so theres no excuse not to pop in for a beer. Reviewed by Mike B
The place has that "local
bar" aura that you can sense just by looking at it, and when you get inside
it is no different.
Shines is frequented by regulars and LB residents- or the occasional out of towners who think all LB bars are like The Inn but learn immediately upon entering that this is not the case (thank God, I say). And it feels welcoming; which cannot be taken for granted at a bar of regulars. It's big but for some reason everyone packs into the smallest part of the bar where the taps are- OK, that's the reason. Reviewed by Tom O.
