At first glance, when it's empty, it looks like your typical hotel bar. But quickly after it opens at 530PM, it fills up with a nice mix of locals and hotel guests. There is a good selection of local craft beers on tap, and one of the evenings I was there there was a beer tasting session going on from a local brewer (Lost Rhino). Nice touch. The bar tender was very upbeat, again great for the traveler. I was there from a Thursday to Sunday, and there were always people enjoying a drink and conversation. If you stay at the Aloft hotel or any of the near by properties, making the XWYZ a watering stop is not a bad idea.
