This is a fairly new place that was vacant for quite some time and opened fairly recently on a little alley type street between the Nine Zero hotel and Cafe Marliave.

It occupies the 2nd floor of the space and it is pretty small. The bar seats maybe 8 people and then there are a number of 4-top tables in the more restaurant type section of this space. I believe 45 is the total capacity so it can get crowded in here pretty easily.

When I saw the taps, I was quite unimpressed and even thought it was surprising that it had been added to the BA database. The selections were nothing more than readily available typical tap offerings like Guinness, Harpoon, Sam, etc. After ordering a Guinness draught, I saw the chalkboard and saw DFH Witches brew on there and it says 3,5. I thought this meant it was $3.50 and I said--oh I'll have that and I was then in formed that it was $35 for a bomber bottle and I opted for something different instead.

The bottle selection is where this place gets a lot more creative in their beer offerings. They had the black session lager from Full Sail, a few different DFH, Smuttynose, Fishermans, Chimay, Ommegang, etc. I believe I even spied a bomber or 2 of Jolly Pumpkins , so their bottle selection was actually waay better than their draught offerings.

The bartender was quick enough and fairly friendly and attentive. I didnt try the food but was told by a couple friends that I happened to bump into there that the food was quite good. Its chef-owned so that usually ensures that the food will remain good even after they've been open for some time.

Overall, a decent little neighborhood bar and a good addition to the neighborhood but nothing to get too excited about.
