Latino locals might still pop by this old Cypress Park bar for after-work Tecates and tequila shots, but, for the most part, the Spanish-speaking stalwarts who used to frequent this beloved dive are all but gone since Dave Nuepert (Short Stop, El Chavito) took over a few years ago. Footsies, like Little Cave not far from it, has been gently gentrified, and it's maintained its charm post-makeover. It's done up in '70s Regal Beagle (the Three's Company's bar) kitsch: homey retro lighting, nude paintings everywhere, dark-red and wood furniture. For the most part, most nights, you'll find boho types in beards and American Apparel garb sipping PBR and cheap shots. DJ sounds range from soul to death metal and there's a jukebox, pool table and smoking area in the back.
