3.83/5 rDev -1.5%
The place is located right next to the Port Authority so there is a lot of foot traffic right in front of the place. As such, it also has a lot of "mainstream" folks that pack it up. The bar has 3 floors; a smallish bar on the first floor, a sizable 2nd floor, and an open ended 3rd floor (I think, as it was closed when I went). There were several TVs on the walls showing some European futbol events. The large windows on the 2nd floor are nice for some people watching. One interesting note, you get your one personal bathroom when you need to go. Overall, a big plus for the size of the place.
The draft list had a good amount of quality brews, definitely a beer bar selection. The bar does cater to non beer drinkers but overall it is more beer focused. On draft, they didn't have anything I couldn't easily find elsewhere. Their bottle selection was just a glass cooler in which you had to figure out what was what, no menu. They had some nice selections but if you weren't around the cooler, you wouldn't know that they had these.
The service was kind of poor the night I went. I received 2 different beers than what I ordered and they didn't do anything extraordinary. The beers were served in proper glasses.
A decent selection across the styles. Could use a bit more diversity. I appreciate the printed menu so you could see what they have.
Overall, an above average beer bar. It gets pluses for being in a touristy area. Attractive bar area and the deck would be nice during warmer weather. Needs to offer some harder to find brews.
