I love the look of the place. Dark and gloomy with a few bright highlighting lights creating a nice ambiance. There is a large projection screen in the back which looked ideal to sports broadcasts. I visited the place after work one Friday for happy hour with some friends and at about 8pm the place was still dead. Only the day bartender and the cook were on hand with the few friends I dragged out. They claimed the place would be packed in a few hours but I didn't stay around to witness. The selection is pretty good, but... very pricey. I don't think I could afford to go here again. With your average brew priced at 7+ dollars, and nothing really above average about them... They have about 12 draughts that I saw, most were Belgians. The draught stand was pretty cool as 2 of the 4 were made of ice. I doubt this adds any usefulness to the tap lines, but more of a cool novelty. The price between draught and bottle didn't very in price and I didn't notice any specials or happy hour specials.

I was excited to find a German beer bar in Dallas, but honestly, was not overly excited about this one. That isn't to say this isn't a good place to visit, please don't get me wrong, particularly if you're looking for a place with 8 or 9 taps of decent beer. But if you're like me and you want a large variety, or at the very least, a solid variety of German beers on tap, which is what I was looking for and hoping for, this isn't the place. Still, if one were to combine the several bottle offerings with the taps, it's got the selection most beer afficianodos are seeking. But, being the picky bastard that I am, I want tap selections. I'm of the warped mindset that bottles can easily be purchased for someting close to half the price, thus I have a hard time spending me hard earned schillings on them at a beer bar. Still, Gezellig was an interesting place to visit. A smallish, narrow pub with a number of tables along a brick wall on the left which leads to a large flat screen tv at the end. The bar supports 15 or so on the right side. Interesting decor given the blackness all about, but tiny blue lights punched into the tiles to give it an almost starry and somewhat quasi-galactic atmosphere. Got there this past wednesday at about rush hour...a cold and windy as hell day, but thank god they paid the heat bill, since there was 'nary a body inside but for the bar tender who spent a great deal of time on the cell and a guy who looked like Snoop who flashed me a horizontal peace sign (yes, I'm dating myself. Damn it, I still don't know if it meant anything). They had Paulaner Oktoberfest on tap which was might tasty and I enjoyed a Chimay triple too. No food but deli type sandwiches (see my Dallas Ginger Man review...what exactly is the deal with beer bars in Dallas when it comes to food anyway??). This is in the Greenville Ave section of town, which is the place to be if you're looking for bands and bars. A happening neighborhood, which wasn't very happening during my visit, but the place to be if you're a 20-something, probably at 11pm and looking for a place to party. Again, check out Gezellig, especially if you're in that age group, since the beer selection is pretty good, and you can always make this part of your evening pub crawl if that is the game plan.
