The bartender was very helpful and everybody at the bar was warm and welcoming. Paying $12 for a beer however, really hurts.

Great place for watching sports, catching up with friends, whatever, nice crowd, friendly staff. Watched the 2014 FIFA worldcup at this place, very good setup, lots of screens to view comfortably from table or stool. Lagers and ales on tap, Newcastle is my favourite. Not cheap, CHF 8 for a lager, 9 for an ale. Didn't check Guiness, cause I... More

A good sports pub. Staff were really friendly and when requested rugby they put it on the big screen for us! Food was ok- the burgers were good and the bacon on french stick was good.

Friendly and international staff and crowd make every visit a good time. They've got lots of beers on tab, a good whiskey selection and an extensive food menu. It's located right in the middle of downtown Basel which makes it easy to reach by walking or tram. Always my favorite place when going out for drinks -- highly recommended!

The honey dew beer is delicious! Bartenders are fast with the drinks. Prices are resonable. Free WiFi.. a code is texted to your phone for that (unless you don't have coverage in Basel.. then you can't get the code...) closes at midnight. I haven't tried the food- but they have a nice selection.
