This is a pretty cool spot to hang out. They are owned by the same people as McCoy’s and Beer Kitchen across the street. It is actually attached to McCoy’s and serves all their beer. We tried to order a bunch of pony (6oz) size beers to make our own local tasting. Unfortunately, they were out of about half of the special things. It was pretty frustrating because we would tell the server what we wanted, he would come back 4 minutes later and say they were out, we would tell him a replacement, they would be out of that...etc. etc. Our friends ordered food which looked like nice quality pub food. The clientele gets a little douchy later at night. We came back at about 1 in the morning until close, and it is a really great late night hang out place. There’s 4 great beer places to check out right here, so if you like beer, you should visit this neighborhood. The decor is really weird (supper club chic??) but it's fun.

One of the better beer spots to hit up in KC if you want a great selection and lax atmosphere around happy hour. The rotating taps are pretty decent, but the "cellar" always has some outstanding, very difficult to find bottles. Now, are you willing to swallow the $28 price tag that comes with them is another thing (but still cheaper than the Beer Kitchen across the street on their rare stuff). Always a great place for beer events as well. You can also get a good deal on the Mccoy's beers next door (the brew pub that I believe owns The Foundry).

The food is decent for pub food. Haven't had the pizzas yet, but the burgers are fair. Don't expect to be blown away with the food quality though. The deserts are quite delicious though.

Atmosphere can really vary depending on when you stop by. If you are looking for chilled, laid back setting, I suggest going before 9 on the weekends. Any later than that, they try to turn this great beer stop into a club by removing the tables, blaring the music, and setting up the dance floor. So, if standing sandwiched in a crowd crotch-to-ass and attempting (and failing miserably) to scream over the music to the bartender to order your beer sounds good to you, then I suggest showing up around midnight on Fri/Sat.
