    Great selection of beer (lots of things you might not find elsewhere!) for solid prices. It's cozy and dark inside (clearly a great date spot), but there's also a big back patio for larger groups.

    Visit the Black Tree sandwich guy in the back past the bar. They now reside in LES too but you better believe these seasonal/local produce gems got their start at The Crown Inn. They're phenomenal!!!

    Like top shelf but hate top shelf prices? No worries, the bartenders are good and will make you the best well of your life--had the best non-Hendricks gimlet ever tonight. The key: fresh lime juice!

    Been here only three times. Had beers and cocktails (beers are better). They've seasonal beers on tap ranging from $4 - $9, friendly folks behind the bar, and non-rowdy crowd. Music: random

    Not only can you have a great cocktail here, but they have partnered with Black Tree to offer some great eats like their spare rib, blue cheese sandwich.

    Love the moody lighting, pretty decent prices and good selection on tap. Might be hanging more on Franklin because of this spot...and just a few doors down from Chavelas!!

    The spicy watermelon margarita is the perfect summer drink—refreshing, not too sweet or too strong, and just the right amount of spice.

    Cocktails (whisky recommended) are great, backyard is excellent. Don't even look at the menu. Just go up and ask the sandwich man what to eat.

    The bar has a killer soundtrack. Arcade Fire, LCD Soundsystem, etc. Get a draft beer, let the music give you some mojo, and make new friends.

    Friendly, neighborhood bar. Good selection of whiskeys / bourbons and local craft beers. Happy hour until 8pm - $2 off beers 🍻

    Sweet and small with a variety of seating options and smart cocktails. Know what you're ordering though because the bartenders will quiz you.

    Great backyard space. The burrata appetizer is amazing, but the food is a separate business so it's not always available.
  • The Wall Street Journal
    A generous Happy Hour offers $4 beers, $6 selected cocktails and $7 glasses of wine until 8 p.m., even on weekends. Read more

    Never a dull moment here as the spot-on playlist keeps the jams coming and the crowds sprinkle in all night ready to have a good time. When's food going to be available?

    The sandwiches here are the best food on Franklin Avenue, get a pork belly or short rib sandwich.

    Had a creepy experience at the bar when a guy wouldn't stop hitting on the bartender. Then he went on explaining to me that it's ok and they knew each other. Seriously dude? They sell Singlecut beer.
