Nocturnem is the best. The beer is great, the prices are great, the service is great. It's my favorite bar and the clock de la Gordon is remarkable! What a mustache!

On the drive back to Bar Harbor, we literally stumbled onto this place, thanks to Trip Advisor. AMAZING!! No doubt, the BEST meal we've had since we've been in Maine (from Boca Raton, FL). Our waiter Gordon (fantastic) gave us a few suggestions for beer (Marsh Island IPA), appetizer (Monks Plate) and food (Red Dragon Angus Burger & the Sausages... More

We were looking for some local nightlife and were pointed here. They have a very interesting beer selection and as their menu explains, it certainly did push me out of my typical comfort zone and encourage me to be adventurous.

A beer drinker's paradise. And they have rounded out a terrific beer selection with an awesome menu - these may be the best burgers in Bangor. Friendly staff, quirky space, and terrific art installations in their gallery space. Be sure to check out the outdoor area in back on a nice day.

This is the place to go. An afternoon off, an after-work drink, a date, night out with friends, anything! A rotating draft selection and many bottles, tasty fresh seasonal food menu, knowledgeable staff who love being there and helping folks chose their next favorite beverage.

The place is awesome... Perfect laid back atmosphere and service is the same. Exactly what you should expect from a craft beer hot spot. Make your life simple order a draft beer and sausage and kraut.

Limited space, good service and staff, live music on a Saturday night, good salad and dessert, varied specialty drink menu with somewhat pricey offerings

If you enjoy craft beer Nocturnem Draft Haus needs to be on your list of places to visit in Bangor. They always have an excellent selection of craft beer on hand, including some on cask. I have yet to have a meal their that was disappointing and their burgers are the best in the area.

Warm and Cozy. Nice Music,Great Beer and a solid staff. I met my wife here after her yoga class-great concept-Husband sits at bar with beer while wife does yoga-lol Enjoyed some eclectic food and a knowledgeable bartender. I love the ambiance! Wood and stone feels like a college "ratskellar" from the 80's.
