The casual, laid back vibe of Little Woodrow’s offers a break from the sometimes party heavy atmosphere of Midtown. That’s not to say things aren’t busy; guests can enjoy one of the many party games in the patio area with a cool drink. There’s also TVs both inside and and outside on the patio bar. It’s also a very dog friendly bar.
