Located on the corners of Allen St. and College Ave right in the center of State College and right across the street from Penn State. Also "directly above the conter of the earth" according to their menu. This bar has the atmosphere of a real pub; dark, smokey, underground, with dark polished wooden tables. There is almost always excellent music playing, with good live bands on weekends. One of the only bars in State College where bluegrass and soul bands play. This is the bar more for the grad students and profs than the frat boys and sorority girls. The service is great, with a friendly, knowledgable staff, except on the weekends it can get a little crowded. Usually 30 or so beers on tap with a very limited number of these containing the word "light." Respectable number of bottles as well (around 150 would be my guess), which also tend more towards quality brews. The food is rather good although the selection is somewhat limited, and comes from the restaurant upstairs; The Corner Room. Has an attached game room with a pool table, 2 dart boards, and a foosball table. Zeno's is a must if visiting State College.

In from NH and first spot I hit was Zeno's...
Cool basement entrance and doorman waiting to card, though not carded...must be the grays. Small to medium main room, with small game room off to the side. Trivia night was in full swing. Very small bar with all stools occupied...few open tables but being solo really wanted a bar spot. Tap list was fantastic, bottle list even better!! Lots of hard to come by beers...Bourbon County Barleywine & Stout, Plethora of Duck Rabbit, Nugget Nectar, Hair of the Dog: Otto, Michael, Adam annnd Fred! Really great stuff!

Bartender Dave was super busy but still made time to chat beer, pluss let me sample a few unlisted items that were real treats! Thanks again!

Band started at 10pm on this Monday night...really great but just wish I could remember the name :)

Had chicken tenders and fry basket...large portions and standard quality. Service was pretty quick.

Prob going back this eve for more...highly recommended
