    Great place to enjoy a drink with fellow nerds. The TARDIS a bathroom is a sight to see but the friendly bartenders are also just as amazing. They have a drink & draw the 2nd Saturday of every month.

    Amazing Victorian atmosphere, great drinks, nice people, and FANTASTIC karaoke set up on Sundays!! Also promises nerd references and movie showing events! Best bar ever.

    Sunday's are karaoke. Sure. Get there early and tip the emcee guy or else you'll wait 2 hours and never sing. Great vibe but karaoke guy on Sunday has a weird power trip. Don't make fun of his boots

    I really wanted a Doctor Who drink but these concoctions are too sugary. Shirley Temple of Doom was great (heavy pour of rye whiskey, ginger ale, splash of grenadine). Ask for ginger beer substitute.

    Check out The Way Station’s blog for that night’s entertainment before you go. For some events, like the Dr. Horrible Sing-Along, folks who come in costume get drinks at Happy Hour prices all night. Read more

    Cleverly themed drinks at modest prices, friendly staff, awesome steampunk and sci-fi decor, and the bathroom is a TARDIS. If you're a self-proclaimed nerd, this is the spot to be 🖖

    The way station was incredible. Their drinks were great, perfect for any whovian or regular bar friend as well. Wonderful people, music, location and the bathroom is super awesome

    The Way Station's real draw is in the form of live music. I've never been to this bar without a performance being in progress or about to start (they say to expect it six days a week). Read more

    Coolest bar in all of Brooklyn. Perfect for Whovians. Good beer, Doctor Who themed drinks. Go into the TARDIS to find out how much bigger is on the inside.

    They serve a whiskey shot in a mini teacup followed by a PBR chaser. That will then propel you make a trip to the awesome Tardis bathroom. Not a bad night.

    There's a TARDIS here. What more do you need? (The Who-themed drinks are pretty great too.)

    The steampunk cocktail lounge and screening room is a must for those fancying Prohibition-worthy cocktails and themed movie nights.
  • Mindy C.

    Chill vibe with Dixieland jazz, and friendly bartenders. Also, $4 Kolsch on draft? Tell me: HOW can you beat that?

    It's a Dr. Who themed bar, complete with a Tardis bathroom. So cool! Good selection of beers and Dr. Who themed cocktails. Coming back for a Dr. No. 10. I will drink David Tennant.
