This is a few blocks away from the Theater area so I think it is trying to capture the theater crowd. It happened to be a few blocks from my hotel and they have a good beer list on line.

When I walked up I saw the 2 dollars off drinks and 2-dollar appetizers for happy hour 2pm-6pm every day of the week. Inside it has lots of dark wood with a big bar on the left with some tables and all tables and booths to the right. It was a bit odd to have 4 pool tables and TVs behind the bar area when the rest of the space looked like upscale dinning. The waiters had long black aprons and were well dressed. We took a booth by the windows and it was pretty empty for a Saturday late afternoon.

They had a good beer menu with about 6 taps and 8 bottles but it hadn't been updated in several months apparently. I was shocked to see the New Belgian's 2 Degrees Below on the menu on May 5th but I asked the waiter if they really had it on tap. He said yes and went to get me a glass. Surprise, no they don't have it, but also on the menu it said they have a New Belgian Seasonal. He didn't know what that was so I ordered Odell Pale Ale. He left and came back with nothing, but suggested I try the Summit IPA as a good substitute. I said that was fine. He came back again with nothing and said it was out. So 3 strikes against me I asked what beers they did have that wasn't Coors. He left and came back with a small sample of Springboard for me to try. I was just relieved they had a craft beer so I drank springboards again.

The food was nice pub food on big plates with sandwiches, pastas and steaks on the menu. It was good but not extremely memorable. I had forgot all about the happy hour so I was very happy to see I was paying $2.25 per beer which made the experience much better and if I was staying at that hotel I would go back again during happy hour but this time I would sit at the bar so I could see all the tap handles. The menu did have a beer pairing and wine pairing with each food but it is to bad most of the beers were not avalable.
