Al's Tavern

I rarely give out 5-star reviews, but when the bartender signs + comes over to chat-chat with us -+ has a positive attitude + the closed captions are on - bam! Completely accessible experience. Thanks Holly and Al's Tavern!

Sometimes you want to go in a watering hole, have drinks, play some pool, maybe hustle like a pool shark if you're feeling lucky.

It is a sweet delight when the bartender is deaf-friendly! I am happy to say that Holley, the bartender at Al's Tavern and someone I call my friend, knows American sign language. It's an easygoing experience for everyone when the bartender can sign! First we came with friends for my birthday. And because we had a good time, we came back with friends for my man's birthday. And we most certainly will come back. Thanks to Holley, Al's Tavern can say they gave full access to many of us. And because of my personal connection to Holley, I must give five stars!

Holley is there Saturday nights, except when she is travelling. Order your drink and have a conversation with the cool bartender using your natural language: sign language! And if you feel like playing hustle shark, the pool table is ready for you!
