This is a great bar a few blocks from where I live. One of the owners, Pete, works in the cue card department at SNL, so we've had a few SNL parties there. The bar is two-stories; the lower floor is your classic sports bar. The upper floor is a really cool candle-lit lounge. So I guess you could say Professor Thom's is the bar equivalent of the mullet—classy on top, rough and tumble on the bottom.
