Angel says he could use a drink, so they head to a nearby bar.
In the scene, we see them seated at the bar. They buy drinks, then make a toast "to Mike".
then get into a slightly hostile discussion about Quinn's possible

admits he never actually put Quinn in for a transfer, and Quinn admits
he never really contacted his union rep - and that he isn't in an
alcohol rehab program.
What is it actually in real life?
A. A bar.
Where can I find it in real life?
A. This scene was shot in a tiny bar in Highland Park originally called "The Little Cave", but which has recently had a major makeover, and has been renamed "La Cuevita" - which means (what else?) "The Little Cave" in Spanish.
How the heck did you figure out where it was?
A. In the early seasons, I usually had to hunt down the locations after viewing the episodes,
using clues from the various scenes. By the now, though,
I've developed a small group of fans, spies & tipsters who kept an
eye out for Dexter filming in their neighborhoods, and would let me know

Between those reports, my own personal reconnaissance around town, and a

west of those streets, on Espanola Way. (Thanks, Rick!)
