Location Description:

Though its name is right out of an action/sci-fi flick, Area IV is actually a down-to-earth, delightful dive located on the western boundary of the Princeton Heights neighborhood. We couldn't help but notice a theme here: A staggering number of police badges line all four walls of the interior, the bartender looks like a cop and there's even a small party of off-duty lawmen hunched conspiratorially over a corner table. Although sports play on the television mounted above the bar, the real entertainment is found in the patrons. The bartender smiles and rattles a pair of handcuffs at a woman who ostensibly just told a lude joke. There's an infectious cheer in the air here. Just remember to mind your pints and quarts; otherwise, you might be leaving in a squad car.
