The Boom Boom Room – Fillmore
I almost left out The Boom Boom Room, having always thought it was only a music venue. A friend of mine who knew better dragged me in there the other day, and much to my surprise it is actually quite the classic bar, complete with super cheap happy hour specials.
The Boom Boom Room is spacious with dark, warm lighting and plenty of comfy bar stools along the bar. They stock the standard bar fare, nothing out of the ordinary. Happy hour was nice and mellow, with great music on the jukebox and little competition for the bartender’s attention.
The Boom Boom Room doesn’t serve food, which is great, because it means one can run across the street to Popeye’s and grab a fried chicken dinner to eat at the bar. Eating greasy food and drinking whiskey in a dark bar was just what I needed to unwind from a long day of working with the public.
Fillmore is a street severely lacking in bars, so I’m happy to have found this little booze filled oasis in the middle of it all.
