    I used to work here and I love this place! Such a great spot in midtown to hang out at. They have 2 floors, a patio and a rooftop. Great selections of beers on tap and excellent food!

    Head upstairs for more room and awesome bar service. Looking for food? Get the Grilled Chicken, Grilled Chicken Wrap (to the tune of Vanilla Ice's Ninja Rap).

    An oasis in the upper midtown craft beer desert, this bar sports 36 taps - mostly imports and craft beers - and beer-inspired eats, like wings brined in Bluepoint Toasted Lager.

    Be sure to try Zane Lamprey's Monkey Rum! The spiced version has warm vanilla & tropical flavors that are best enjoyed neat but also would mix exceptionally well.

    Cool bar out in TS. Pricey but chill ambiance. Music is loud by the bar, chill in the bar stools.

    Love this place but they don't have the MLB TV package...which sucks. But they do have free WI-Fi, so if you have the MLB app on your iPad or iPhone, this place's good enough + awesome beer selection

    The southern fried chicken wings are not that great. Get the slider combo instead! - both the lamb burger & meatball sliders were delish!

    Ask for Heather. Down to earth, straight forward, thoughtful server/bartender and seems like a great person. Plus she can rock a fedora and braids like its her business.

    FYI: the guys loitering outside the bar in street clothes are bouncers, and wont ask for ID, just nod at you. If you dont grasp that they WILL roughly grab you as you pass to stop you, girls included.

    This DJ plays a great live mix of Avicii's Levels and Don't Stop Believing. Haven't heard that anywhere else.

    Good beer selection, but music is stupid loud upstairs after 10 considering they don't technically have a dance floor - it's insane to have to scream conversation at your friends when not at a club.

    Go to the top floor if it's open. Two words: rooftop patio. And there's a bar on the second level.

    Douchey Midtown crowd with overly loud music. Beer selection is much better than your average Midtown bar but why come here when you can get the beer elsewhere with a better crowd?

    Not really the place for chitchat as the DJ keeps pumping up the volume. If you need to talk get ready to shout 📣, it's just a bit loud. If you want to watch the game step right in.

    This is the go to place for after work foolery in the theater district so it's usually crowded but the food & drink prices are on point. There's also a 2nd floor and rooftop deck as a summer bonus.
