Here is the barfly review:
Serving all walks since 1922, the VC is one of the few completely unpretentious "real bars" left in downtown. Conversation abounds among the hodge-podge of regulars lined up at the long bar. Mezzanine seating great for taking over with a small group. A few sidewalk tables. Cool, companionable, staff.
We never got to go to the old Virginia cafe, but it sounded like more of the types of bars that sweetheart d and i are used to. Dive-ey as hell, cheap and strong drinks.
The new Virginia Cafe that we went to yesterday was nice. Awesome bathrooms with a chalk board and framed pinup posters. Old school wooden bar with wooden single and double booths. Overworked D had a turkey club that she swore was out of this world. We didn't have any adult beverages. I had an avocado burger and salad no fries. Burger was good. Salad was tasty. It was to dark for pics. We enjoyed ourselves killing time till the show started at upper playground.
We would go there again.
