3.95/5  rDev n/a
vibe: 5 | quality: 3.5 | service: 4 | selection: 4 | food: 4

Atmosphere: its beautiful inside, has a nice balcony to over look the downtown street. its very classy and has a unique layout

Selection: doesn't have too many rare beers that I saw but it has a very large variety of great beers

Service: At times it can be slow, but they'll make up for it by giving discounts

Food: if this place didn't have any beer, i would still come here just for the food.

I haven't found too many great bars in Sarasota. So far this has definitely been my favorite. The atmosphere alone is enough to make this place a common stop for me.

I stumbled upon this place while visting the mexican resturant next door, I guess the beer gods wanted me to try this spot. This bar is on the second floor, there is 2 ways a stairway and also a elevator. Upon entering you are greeted with nice painted faux walls with beer swag, tables down the left side a nice wrap around bar. For being a Belgium style bar I would of thought they would of had more Belgium beers on draft but was pretty shocked to see 4 maybe. They did serve the beer in correct glassware which is always a plus to me. The service was good, the selection could be a bit better, but overall it was nice. Having a Cigar City draft in the Cigar City shaker glass was my highlight.
