The beer selection was pretty good with some belgians, some locals and some exotics but nothing too hard to find (would have been more impressed if it wasn't sooo expensive) and the food was interesting with some standard pub fare and some innovative concoctions (again, really expensive for a bar). But the service ruined whatever the bar had going for it so that's all I'll be focusing on for this review.
(Warning: shallowness and callousness below. You want a helpul review, you need to be brutal.)
For starters, the main bartender was
A) obnoxious (maybe she was trying for pretentious but it didn't come off that way at all),
B) mean (she was nice to the single people sitting near us so we think maybe she doesn't like couples) and
C) ignorant about her craft (didn't know one thing about the beer she was serving). All of which I can handle had she not been so
D) unpresentable - read as 'unattractive.'
We could've lived with all that and gave her the benefit of the doubt if she was at least attractive (tip: if you're a hot bartender, you can get away with all that, if not, you need to have a nice personality and know your s**t).
Finally, if that wasn't enough buzzkill, when the 2nd bartender showed up, he and the girl got into a heated argument right in front of everyone. Nice work guys, not! We will skip this place next time. We preferred Elysian and even The Pike Pub over this. They kicked this place's behind in every respect.
