Fodor's Review

In the wilds of the Bella Vista neighborhood, the Royal serves both nouveau hipsters and entrenched locals with equal aplomb. Beer—both local and imported—is abundant, but so are fine mixed drinks and better-than-average comfort food. To top it off, there's a great jukebox, rocking Iggy Pop, Serge Gainsbourg, and The Kinks.
