After an amazing dinner at TJ Buckley's, my girlfriend and I wanted a nightcap so we made the short walk down the street to Metropolis. As soon as you walk in, there is a cool, underground sort of vibe to it. most of the booths and tables were occupied so we cozied up to the bar and were treated... read more

Metropolis was a very nice wine and cocktail lounge, pretty, elegant service, inventive drinks, good music. Now since it has changed it is almost as bad as Arkham. Ugly playground furniture, pole dancing, a real appeal to LCD (lowest common denominator).

My boyfriend and I happened upon this spot. We loved the décor and intimacy of the space. And the bartender was gracious and accommodating. We hit this spot before dinner! Really enjoyed our experience. If we were locals, we would be back!

Metropolis was a lot of fun! Limited food, so I cannot say what the food was like, as we did not order food. HOWEVER, the drinks were so nice...Mostly infused drinks, made on premises. We missed the live entertainment, but I can imagine it was a lot of fun! This bar is such a really fun little bar. I highly... More

With a gently updated interior tucked on a side street just off the main drag in Brattleboro, this cool little spot surprises. The menu features tapas, which I did not try, but also has unique drinks made from house-infused spirits. My mandarin orange pomegranate martini was excellent and tangy. And the ginger basil drink was a dazzling green, but very... More

My husband and I stopped by Metropolis Wine Bar & Cocktail Lounge for a few drinks. They infuse their own concoctions and I must say that everything was very good. They also had a decent selection of wines. While the tapas they offer are limited, the ones we tried were very good. They also had live entertainment the night we... More

We stopped in for a quick cocktail while we were visiting from out of town. We found this place on tripadvisor; it is small and off the main drag, so it is quiet and cute. We had great cocktails, and though they were a bit pricey, it was well worth it for the infused liquors and time/thought they put into... More

They always have great customer service and atmosphere. Drinks are a bit pricey but great taste! Some nights are mellow and some are crazy. Appetizers are yummy!

What a unique place! The people who own this place make these interesting infusions: standard liquors that are mixedwith very unique herbs and such. Then they us them to make fabulous cocktails. Unbelieveable results!

Arrived late in Brattleboro, looking for food and a drink -- and this place was perfect! For those looking for late night eats, they serve food basically until people stop asking for it (ie no specific time when the kitchen closes). GREAT drink menu, and although the food menu is limited, everything we tried was delicious. The place has a... More
