BarFly's Review of Yur's
Famed as the (post-duty, we so dearly hope) hangout of drivers from the neighboring Radio Cab this disused stretch under the 405, Yur's no longer so smoky expanse also houses loyal sects of aged barflies, area rockers and that peculiar niche of just-arrived post-grads continually ranting against gentrification.
The decor's nothing to remember beyond the extended bar and the long-backed booths that service drunken romances almost as easily as the legendarily stiff drinks.
There's a rowdiness to Yur's, downmarket drunkards are positively encouraged with their aggression from early-morning start gates which the indie interlopers eternally indulge. Two pool tables, cards and board games, fried food, internet juke, big buck hunter, golden tee, poor behavior applauded - and you're pretty much guaranteed a quick cab.

Getting to Yur's
Yur's is the site for alums to watch the 128th Williams v Amherst game. It will be Saturday the 8th of November with a 1pm kick-off. I've never been there so I rated it 'could be worse'. But since somebody picked it out of thousands (OK, hundreds), I am sure that the back room will be great! I've read the reviews … Yur's is a bar of the people! It is an interesting selection as a venue for fans of two small New England teams!
I have been going to Yur's on and off for a few years now and have always loved the dive/sports bar atmosphere. The Owner and Staff are incredibly friendly. The food is great, the drinks are stiff, there is a good selection of beers and there are HD flat screens all over the bar.
Recently I found out the Terry (owner) was a former Redskin and has a nice group of Redskin fans that show up each week for the games. Come down and join us!
I started going there when i worked at radio cab pumping gas. I even won $10 grand there on keno jan 21st 97 .I still think patti is the SHIT!!!
This bar might be a little smoky, but at least it is always nice and cool when I go in there. It is a pretty roomy place and there are a lot of stools at the bar so you can just sit there by yourself reading, and get totally fucked up. And oh yeah, those wonderful bartenders will let you do just that-- get fucked up! Yeah, I've been cut off a few times there myself, but damn it thank god, last time those ladies poured the drinks so heavy I thought I was at fuckin Sewickly's! I have met a lot of cool ass people in this bar too, nice people go to Yur's to relax and get liquored. And don't make me say it again the bartenders here rock!
Late one evening, we were sitting in a booth at Yurs with pitchers and shots and some young dude crashed into the table, nearly spilling our drinks - his legs simply wouldn't keep him upright anymore. Much giggling ensued.
The Bartenders act like real Bartenders. The drunks act like real drunks. What more could I possibly want?
I used to live by yur's and that place is so special it makes me cry. Those bartenders are so rad, I love them times infinity. I would party all nite there and then wake up for delicious food at yur's at 7am. fuck I loved that!
I don't know how many times they almost kick my crew out, but they always let me stay and get more wasted. plus all those old fuckers in there only add to the charm. le sigh ...
But it is most surly for me. I love the half dive half sports bar atmosphere. Drinks are stiff, waitresses are sweet, and with 3 pool tables I feel right at home.
the cabbies must always be on video crack (which they have a shit ton of). otherwise its abunch of wannabe pool hounds, rockabillies and D.) others. pretty nice though, low key vibe and all the plastic swords you can pocket!
If you want to sit around and smoke mad cigs with haggered cabbies, then this is your spot.
