    Karaoke with friendly happy nerds, good drinks & decent prices.

    Just okay. Fun atmosphere, but even basic cocktails were mediocre.

  • Nick C.

    There is a $15 minimum for cards

    Drinks are cheap, staff are nice and everyone is friendly. As far as I know.

    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 doctor who bathroom was interesting

    Dorothy Chan · August 25
  • Shakira E.

    A tardis, live music, good drinks, great vibe... What is not to love?

  • Steven P.

    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

    The vegetable empanadas are great! Live music is awesome too. Very relaxing spot with great vibes!

    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.

    They have great events. Everyone's friendly there. You're allowed to bring in food.

  • Clemente C.

    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.

    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.

    Tardis restroom!

    Great bar for live music

    Solid beer and cocktail selection with free live music to boot.

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

    Drinks are fine. I really enjoyed the music. For sure I will be back.

    Cindy Samper · November 8, 2014

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

    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

    Chill bar, usually has an interesting band playing

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

    Jen Grunwald · August 7, 2014
  • Manda S.

    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.

    I took a shit in the Tardis lmao

    A Doctor Who bar! Yes!

    John Paterakis · March 24, 2014
  • Heather F.

    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.

    Easily the densest concentration of nerdbombers I have ever seen.

    Soooo. This place is a shithole.

  • Deanna

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

    Deanna · December 6, 2013
  • Monica N.

    Drinks are strong! Great place to hear live bands

    Monica Nina · November 10, 2013

    Get the Rose Tyler. Also great for live music.

    Vivian Li · November 9, 2013

    Super friendly bartenders! Tip accordingly.

    Cindie Pal · September 21, 2013
  • Benjamin P.

    The Companion is a solid choice.

    Benjamin Phelps · September 3, 2013
  • Maddie F.

    Music is great. Go in in that state of mind & you'll have a blast.

  • Compass

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

    Compass · August 12, 2013
  • Hunter V.

    Kati and Dot are the best!

    Hunter Vick · July 5, 2013
  • Hunter V.

    Katie is the best! I very that's not how you spell her name, but idk

    Hunter Vick · June 21, 2013
  • Kirsten A.

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

    Kirsten Alana · June 14, 2013
  • Dave D.

    $4 draft & well, $2 PBR, $1 off everything else 4-8pm.

    Dave D · June 2, 2013
  • John A.

    Ask for Kraken, Grenadine and Pineapple Juice. So. Fucking. Good.

    John Aprigliano · May 27, 2013
  • Mindy C.

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

    Mindy Carstensen · April 28, 2013

    Holy crap they have St George Spirits absinthe!
