Sorry to harp on what may be a common theme, but the Gingerman was a lot nicer in it previous location. I find the new spot to be cramped, especially when it gets busy on the weekends. It can be almost impossible to squeeze through the very thin space along the bar to get to the back patio. The selection of beer is still top notch, but I've been unimpressed with the service here even before they moved. I think that the demographic changes down town are to blame, too many condo ducebags tipping low and ... well being duce bags. I've waited along time to be served on relatively slow week nights. The prices are also some of the highest in town, understandable b/c I am sure that their rent is ridiculous. This used to be my go to bar in Austin and if I am down town it is one of the few places that I still like to go. But it no longer has enough draw to get me to deal with the parking and the crowds on the weekend.
