Papa Joe's


Papa Joe's Bar has probably one of the most unique shots in town - The Plunger Shot. This simple shot of liquor is delivered in a not-so-simple way, and that's in a toilet plunger. That's right, you heard us correctly. Go to Papa Joe's for this fun and quirky atmosphere - you won't be disappointed.
