Switchyard has a very post-night-shift friendly 8AM opening time, making it a great place to meet up after work. The staff is very friendly, there is ample table space for cards or boardgames, and the beer is excellent!

We had a great time catching up when we visited Switchyard. The staff was friendly and the wine was great (I am not a beer drinker, but there were plenty of other choices). The building looks great and it’s an inviting atmosphere. Highly recommend.
