Delilah's could pass for a goth child's bedroom in regards to aesthetics, but comfortable surroundings, friendly staff and a solid tap and bottle list more than make up for that (if you think of that as a bad thing)

atmosphere is pseudo halloween-esque with a bit of hard rock flaire; quite dark with orangish amber lighting throughout. the bar is to one side, with lounge seating in back. and a rail up front looking out to the sidewalk.

quality and service are great. clean glassware, fresh taps and barkeeps that don't mind talking about beer.

selection is great as well. around 20 taps, along with an extensive bottle list which contains an excellent selection of hard to find Lambics (pricey).

overall, this is a worthy stop for those in the area, as well as to seek out when something good is on tap or one is in the mood for lambics.

2/21/15 - Excellent variety on tap and bottles, great selection of whiskey, nice bartenders, a bit pricey but not for the neighborhood. Overall great place to meet some friends and down some good beer and whiskey.

Delilah’s is a Whiskey lovers’ dream. However, their staff and owner are also extremely knowledgable and into their beers. They run a yearly Barrel Aged tasting event and another that is dedicated to Sour/Lambic and I attended both for the first time last year. Good tap and bottle selections are usually available, with some unique offerings available across the board.

Went in on a Sunday afternoon. Prob about ten other people there, and they were pretty loud.
I had a 3F Pride & Joy, but came primarily for a peek at the bourbon selection. They had a full array
of Pappy Van Winkle, which was exactly what I was looking for. The 23 yr topped out at $45, which seems to be normal for Pappy at this entry point in the market.They also have the largest
collection of liquor bottles that I ever saw in my life. Bartenders were very nice, and even gave us a flashlight to look at the menus. Did I mention that the place is very dark?

It is referred to as a punk rock bar, but I really didn't get that impression. I am sure it gets rocking later in the evening, but
they had some decent music playing. They have a movie every night, which was Elvis Presley
during my visit. There is a black velvet picture of Elvis prominently displayed in the lounging area.Prices were mid range, but the ambiance is priceless.
