This place was recommended by a fellow beer lover in Maine and he did not steer us wrong. The beer selection was outstanding! There aren't many tables, but it wasn't particularly crowded at the hour we visited. I could see it being shoulder-to-shoulder on a Friday or Saturday night since it appeared that lots of locals head here. Our server... More

Terrific and exhaustive beer menu. Our server was friendly and very knowledgable. She asked us what we were looking for, and made some great picks. The food menu is small, but everything was well prepared and we had a nice dinner. One minor fault, was that the place was understaffed and lacked a hostess. Had there been someone to give... More

But really need more food choices -- the appetizer-type plates are good, but it's tough to go here for drinks/dinner because there is simply not enough choice for food on the menu. That said, the beer doesn't get any better than this!!!

...and local places and I got both! Go for drinks and not for food. Not much seating and the food is soso. It is a really fun and lively place with fun all around... might be the beer but what the hell, beer is good!

If you're in Bangor and looking for good beer and decent food, this is the place to go. Beer selection seems to vary day-by-day, but they seem to have a good rotation in place. We'd definitely go back the next time we're in Bangor. When we visited, they had a wide range of eclectic beers on tap (over a dozen),... More

Great beer list. Fun bartenders with great recommendations. This bar would be a great addition to any American town.

we arrived in Bangor the night of water front concerts. Downtown was very busy and it was raining. We had heard of Nocturnem and thought to try it out. If you love beer and want to sample beer this is the place you must go to. They had a limited menu and very limited dining tables. Ordering food requiring plates... More

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
