Because of its well-thought-out selection, relaxing atmosphere and friendly, attentive, knowledgeable service, Deep Ellum is becoming the preferred gathering site for my Wednesday night drinking crew. While not offering the same sheer number of beers as a certain more well-known and crowded beer bar a couple miles to the south, the selection is at least as good in terms of quality and style variety. A couple dozen tap offerings with a wide range of interesting choices, as well as a lengthy list of bottle selections -- many of which seem harder to find than those offered at Publick House. Clearly a lot of thought has gone into the selection. Haven't had a lot of the food, but the chili is outstanding. Of course the biggest contrast is the atmosphere and the service. Though I can't comment on what it's like on a weekend, it's very chill on weekday evenings -- no fights for tables, plenty of room to spread out, a noise level that allows conversation and a much less fratty clientele. And absolutely no snottiness, arrogance or indifference from the staff (which has become an all-too-frequent and extremely offputting occurrence at the Publick House). They seem to genuinely care that you're there, they want you to enjoy your experience and they uniformly know their beer.

This is a hidden gem that I hope people don't discover too quickly -- I almost hasten to post this review. Too many of these and it could turn into a mob scene.
