Although this review is incomplete since I didn't eat here, I feel I should review this place since no one else has. the place is in a non-descript building on fourth street just off PPG place. At night, it's relatively quit but the neon sign beckons. inside there are two floors, the upper floor appears to be the main space, with a large bar in the center with lots of tables. the night we were there was slow so only the downstairs was open. there are tables in the front of the downtstairs bar, a bar in the middle, and an area with comfortable seating in the bacl (couch and pimp chair). the beer list isn't phenomenal but it is good and well selected. I had a furthermore, a bell's, and an east end big hop. The wait staff and owner were very friendly. the menu looks interesting and I hope to make it back some day to try the food. Overall, it's a welcome addition to the downtown scene. Most of the people were late 20's, 30's, and early 40's when we went, a nice change from the south side.

I didn't enjoy my visit here at all. And instead of getting obnoxious and going on and on with the details, I'll just stick to something everyone is interested in, since not everyone is interested in my blabber.

The beer selection here is thin. Thin, at best. Lots of macro stuff, and I am pretty sure they are using the 14 ounce glasses that look like pints. I remember looking around and thinking: hmmm, not much of a selection going on here.

Like I said, I don't want to get on a rant here. I think that this is a decently nice spot, one that you would probably enjoy. Just don't ask me to come along.
