I admit I'm a draft beer guy, so my scores here are going to be on the low side.
Very quirky atmosphere. Folks here from all walks of life. Given the location, I was a bit surprised at the diversity. Several different "rooms" with vastly different feels. Bar area is nice, other parts not so much. A few sidewalk tables for outside seating.
Service was pretty good, considering the crowd and the number of servers working.
Draft selection was underwhelming. Bottle selection is exceptional, especially Belgians and other EU beers. Food was also top notch, not your average bar food.

A - It's a cool place -- an old newspaper office turned into a bar. They print their menus on paper as if it was a newspaper.
Serv - I've had good and not so good service here. Bartenders have been pretty good. Knowledgeable and friendly. Waiters have been hit or miss. Some are attentive and nice while others have been more interested in their own drinking. Not fun. As long as you get a good waiter things are smooth.
Sel - Not bad, but not as much as I'd like. While most beers do fall on the craft side (+1) there are just a few available on tap.
F - A bit better than normal bar food but not by a whole lot. If you are wanting a dinner there are better places around the area.
