Taking the place of the former Sherlock's that has been in this spot for years. I later found out that the same franchise (Sherlock's, Baker Street, Watson's) opened this new gastropub. It certainly takes its inspiration from other well known places (BRC, Hay Merchant, Anvil, Downhouse). So off the bat I am a bit curious...

Anyway, on to the important stuff. This place has been completely gutted and re done from what Sherlock's use to be. A wide open seating and dinning area, with a nice patio outside. A long wood bar with plenty of seats. At the end of the bar is the open kitchen. A nice a relaxed spot until later at night. Then becomes more club like with crappy music, sometimes equally crappy and over barring bands. Your enjoyment entirely depends on what you want in a bar and what time you show up.

The service is great. Several bartenders that are very enthusiastic. Some, not all, are knowledgeable about the beer menu. All are eager to help. They have about 50 beer taps, plenty of wine, and a handful of craft cocktails. As mentioned above, this is nothing new with all the beer bars and cocktail places opening up (and have been open for a while). Anything from Saint Arnold and Karback to Deep Ellum, 512, and Live Oak. With a few other good national micros thrown in.

Food seemed unique the first time I visited, but is really more over priced pub grub. Not bad, but nothing great either. Scotch Eggs are interesting, Reuben is blah, as are the burgers.

Even though I am not a fan of the Sherlock and Baker Street bars, this is a good spot. I think it has gone downhill a little in selection and food since its opening. Though still a place I find myself at every once in while.
