Unpretentious Riverside spot celebrates its fourth anniversary
Ask any Riverside resident to describe Birdies and you’re likely to hear words like hipster, local and fun. You’ll find people of every age, attitude and race. What you won't find is pretension and exclusivity. It is without a doubt one of the most energetic dance places in town, with a unique attitude of its own. While not considered a club, it could easily rival any dance club with its enthusiastic patrons. From the mosaic on the outside wall to the bottle-capped bathroom walls, it’s by far the hippest place in Five Points. On Oct. 5, owner Christie Frazer celebrated the bar’s four-year anniversary — an evening of happy local heroes and loyal dancing (and drinking) patrons.
