Do you like paying exorbitant prices for minute amounts of alcohol? Then look no further than Nocturnem Draft Haus! Staff is pompous, brusque, and overall unpleasant. They hold petty grudges, openly mock patrons regarding liquor preferences, and show blatant preference by serving "friends of the bar" after hours. Bouncers are the rudest of any establishment I've encountered in Maine. Perhaps... More

This is a gem! The brain behind this establishment simply has a love of all good beer and wants to share it! The atmosphere is vibrant, the live music is a treat, the waitstaff quirky and delightful, and the vast array of beers from around the world is impressive. And if you're lost in that sea of suds, any of... More

Nocturnem is my favorite place to go out to downtown. It's low key, intimate, and has an amazing beer selection with a knowledgeable staff who won't steer you wrong. Their food options leave a little to be desired but you should eat at any of the other awesome restaurants downtown and then cap the night off with some drinks here.

the service is unchanged, and the price is unchanged which is good because it has always been a little pricey. My issue is the food seems to be very inconsistent, it is good and then not so good. The beer is the best part of going now. The crowd is still the same, professionals who are friendly but a bit... More

Great food and better beer. Tuesday is 2 dollar taco night. Wide array of beers and knowledgble staff if you can't make up your mind.

Not just humdrum bar food. We had the sausages and kraut and Nocturnem burger. Also had the Original Sin cider. Waitress was curt but prompt and available. Lots of hipsters, if you care about that.

For one always looking something different than usual chain restaurants this place fit the bill. They have a neat atmosphere, warm and inviting. They also have a great beer selection as one would expect. Food is very simple, but good with some neat alternatives like a cheese plate, or a bowl of nuts. Hostess was knowledgeable about the beers, very... More

After having a very nice evening at Blaze across the street, we wandered into Nocturrnem for a digestif. Nice, cozy space with live jazz happening in a back room. Large bar with seating and the male bartenders dressed in vests and ties and female bartender wore a dress. It's a nice effect and sets the tone for simple and elegant... More

I have read good things about this spot on a number of websites and paper publications, and wanted to see for myself. Having just returned from a trip in Germany & Hungary I was keen to try the European style beer and food. I was not disappointed. I had the knockwurst & Kraut, and it was excellent. I enjoy this...
