Okay, the photo they chose for their ad doesn’t help the confusion, but is their bar name one word or two?

I’m guessing it’s located close to either a hospital or a frat house. If the latter, it’s spelled “rapey.”

A graphic artist who looks out for you and prevents trouble like this will keep you out of therapy.
