    The name of this tavern loosely translates to "bar of the city," serves drinks often made with local spirits in a cozy setting with antique furniture and a speakeasy-style room in the back.

    You’ll find an extensive beer list, leather booths, brocade wallpaper and hipsters shooting stick in an antler-adorned back room, but they’ve set their corner tap on the path toward longevity. Read more

    Always a bro-pumpin' party on the weekend and great jazzy weekdays. The place makes us think we're nearing Hotel de Ville on the Paris Metro.

    First time here. Very pleasant evening. Been looking for a Tuesday night spot and this place wins with the cocktails and live music. Brad made me a great Corpse Reviver, Old-Fashioned, and Last Word.

    Order the Bar DeVille cocktail, a potent elixir of rye, Campari, grapefruit juice, lemon juice, bitters, simple syrup and egg white, it's a frothy delight: Read more

    A great neighborhood bar for every mood: whether you want to sip some classic cocktails, shoot a game of pool, dance to a DJ, or just drink cheap beer and chill in a booth!

    Great cocktails, small but good tap list, good bottle list, and laid back vibe. Already been back several times!

    Order a Tom Collins. Their ingredients make it one you won't forget, for its deliciousness and its potency.

    Perhaps the most perfect bar. Variety throughout the three sections and a photo booth to capture the good times.

    Come to drink and play free pool with the worst pool sticks in the world. Club scene in the back later in the night.

    Had a great time; however, there was a male bartender who was pretty rude and rough with my friends back in July. He got pretty mouthy with some of the ladies as well.

    "Bar Deville" means "Bar of the City." One of Dew Tour BMX athlete Kevin Porter's (@tierraKP) fav hangouts. Ask for 1 of Brad Bolt's drinks he's straight out of Hogwarts with his drink concoctions
