The New York Times has discovered a Pleasant Ridge watering hole which pays homage to "The Shining," The Overlook Lodge.
In a Nov. 21 travel story which takes a look at movie bars, The Times considers the eerie details of the homey bar, from the axes on the wall, to the illuminated sign outside: “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.”

The decor runs to rustic chic with antler chandeliers, timbered eaves, a big stone fireplace and mid-century modern chairs.
