The City Bar isn't really a BeerFly worthy establishment but since somebody added it and because it is a great bar for lower State Street, I'll review it. In college this was one of my most successful places for picking up chicks or for bringing young ladies to seal the deal. It has an atmosphere that lends itself towards such activities - Dark Basement with big booths and leather sofas, great mixed drinks/martinis, fruit infused vodkas, excellent juke box, etc...

Staff are always on the ball. No matter how busy the City may be, they will jump to serve you. Most of them know their trade well or are at least very good looking. Drink specials are also great at the City.

Beer selection is limited to a handful of local crafts (Capital, New Glarus, perhaps some Furthermore or Lake Louie, etc...) and a couple of regional/national crafts as well as several macros on tap and in the bottle. Like I said, this isn't really a BeerFly sort of place but if you find yourself stuck in line at Brats or Mondays don't bother waiting. Just head on down to the City where there is never a line and the drinks/atmosphere are better anyways.
