vibe: 4 | quality: 4 | service: 3.5 | selection: 4.5 | $$

Having never visited this place when I lived in the city, I decided to check it out during my last visit. I was stopped in for drinks at 7:30pm on a Saturday night and found it to be pretty uncrowded. It wasn't very surprising to me, given that they don't have a large food selection and it was still during dinner time in the city.

It was a fairly large place with a lot of wood. There were tables in the front, and along the side, opposite the bar. There also appeared to be a lounge area in the back with couches and things, although I didn't venture back there.

They had a large selection of both beers on tap as well as bottles, including quite a number of beers that I haven't seen anywhere else or have rarely seen in my local New England establishments. The beers were broken up by style, as well as a selection of locals. They were also divided by specialty beers, which I think were the rarer/more expensive ones.

I first ordered an Ommegang Rouge, which was classified as a specialty beer and was served in a smaller snifter-style glass. Both "non-specialty" beers I had were served in pint (true pint) glasses, not the smaller shaker glasses.

Although expensive compared to most other places, prices seemed pretty comparable for NYC prices ($6.50 - $7.50).

Although the bar started relatively quietly, it was packed by the time we left at 10:30. Luckily we were at a table, but by that time, there was crowded standing room only.

Overall, I liked this place and will definitely go back.
