    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.

    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

    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.

    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

    A lot of cool drink options, very solid beer selection. Live music was awesome, great variety and solid performances. Tardis is much bigger 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.

    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.

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

    Check out the Tardis (British police box) which they've converted into a toilet. It's been signed by two original Doctor Who actors.

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

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

    Small and not as much Dr Who as I'd like but good drinks and totally worth it. I could see some disappointed though.

    Don't forget to ask for a sonic screwdriver from the bar before getting a photo with TARDIS

    This place is a steam punk and Doctor Who mash up paradise. Themed cocktails and a dollar off drafts during happy hour!

    The bathroom is "hidden" in the TARDIS. Free concerts occur often and are always good.

    The TARDIS really is bigger on the inside. Also, the 10th Doctor is totally delicious.

    If you're looking to save money, their draft beers are only $6 a piece (and yummy) versus cocktails that are at least $9.
