I found this place walking to Variety Playhouse in five points Once we sat down I realized this used to be Bridge Town Grill which had great food. If i could still get that Jerked ckicken and great beer WOW! So needless to say this place has a great atmosphere big booth's low lighting a very norrow hall way wich makes for a New Orleans kinda vibe. You can hear the person you are talking with. The service is fair but polite and knows the menu well. The selection if I had to compare to Brickstore or Trappeze ranks 3rd. for what I have found so far? Not bad for a city that is going beer crazy right now. Every body has stepped up there game here in Georgia!!
What makes this in the the same company as Brickstore is they offer a good selection of cheese and have tasty food. The beer was served in the proper glass and the bathrooms are kept clean. The prices are very fair considering this is in the trendy Five Points area... So kudos who ever owns this place your doing a great job thanks for all your hard work. There's plenty of room left in this town for a great beer bar.

This is an awesome beer bar in little five in Atlanta. One of my favorite places to go, always something new on draft and their bottle list is immense. Give it a try the food is amazing and the servers know their beer.

Our first stop in the Little Five Points area, and a very good one. Excellent beer selection, cool vibe, friendly bartender. We enjoyed everything about the place except we only went 1 for 2 on food selections. Still worth a stop.

Atmosphere melds with the rest of Little Fives, dark, dingy and comfortable on the inside, like a classic pub should be. Both the quality and selection of draughts is first class. An expansive menu and vintage list are available at mostly reasonable prices, though some of the vintage can be quite steep. Last I was there, KBS was $60 a bottle, but that was probably the only outrageous price. The menu is a clipboard with binder rings that hold about 40 pages of material. If you've never been, you'll need a moment to look it over. It's finely detailed, and if the description for a drink is too nuanced, the staff will be more than happy to clarify things for you. The service is relatively quick, and very attentive and helpful to aid in your selections. There is some above average food here, nothing too fancy, but more than satisfactory should you need a bite to eat. They also have a great spirit and cocktail selection.

Overall: One of my favorite bars, one not to miss if you're in the area.

You may wait almost forever for a beer, but their selection is worth it. While this place gets packed quick, you can make reservations (the food is great). If you don't call ahead, be prepared to stand against the wall while you drink, or have people constantly reaching over you to order.

I have been here twice, had dinner once. Overall the place is cool and has nice decor. The long skinny path by the bar to the back of the restaurant is not well thought out. It is a pain to get through this and actually sit down. Crowd is hipster to the max. Food is average at best. Beer menu is solid, with lots of draft and bottle/cans. The vintage menu is cool to look at but really who is paying $50+ for a KBS aged 2+ years. I would not recommend this place but if you are in the area stop by.

Stopped in visiting my friend in Altanta. There selection was good. They have a beer cellar with a good selection of older beers, some are a little pricey. The vibe is relaxed with a nice stone inlay bar counter. The service was great.
