If you consider yourself a bit of a connoisseur of beers, this is the place to go in Bangor. They offer an array of interesting beers on tap from around the world, as well as a few meads. Thursday nights also include live Jazz. There are lots of draws to this european style pub, however, I would recommend eating before... More

I grew up in Bangor and when I came home to visit family a few years ago and discovered Nocturnem I was beyond thrilled. An extensive and ever rotating draft selection complimented by an extensive bottle collection makes this Mainer's heart sing (and the liver cringe on occasion). The staff are well versed in their beer knowledge, there are also... More

Nocturnem is focused, and I love the place for it. They like local, they like good beer, the like the arts, and they like to make good food. For me, it's about the beer, and Nocturnem maintains a selection that is turns over regularly. It can appear a bit eclectic but there's a method to the madness. They keep a... More

They have a remarkable variety of excellent beers from which to choose as well as an impressive selection of spirits. There is a nice, neighborly feel to the place and the staff is welcoming. I thoroughly enjoyed the sausage and sauerkraut with warm German potato salad. The menu is not huge, but I see that as an advantage.

Nocturnum has a great selection of Beers, and a very relaxing atmosphere. Comfortable couches and low music, so you can chat. Good selection of ciders and gluten free beers for the gluten free crowd. They don't open until 4 PM, so don't plan on lunch there. Food is served, but I have never partaken, it does come highly recommended from... More

Ditto every other 5 or 4 star rating. It's a great place. Service is top shelf. Get a pretzel or have dinner. You will be happy you did.

Excellent drinks, and the atmosphere is great. Once heard a Beatles cover band, incredibly entertaining, said they couldn't play Eleanor Rigby without an accordion. Loved the artwork, which is apparently done by one of the owners or workers, amazing. Good for a special night out cause the drinks are a little pricey.

Definitely a go-to place for our group of beer-loving foodies. The chicken wings that they serve are excellent - NOT fried, instead they are grilled. The service is good and quirky in the best way. A little on the pricey side but the atmosphere is very good and the staff knows their stuff. A group of us have been going... More
