Went in here for a drink while waiting for friends. Nice atmosphere and a good selection. I would like to go again and spend more time.

“Right at the Lights”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

Look for the fairy lights around the trunks of the trees outside and turn right into this gently lit and inviting bar. There's a friendly atmosphere from the minute you walk in and are greeted by the awesome Kristal, a truly great barperson whom I wished I could have taken back home to give local bar staff a few lessons on how strangers should be welcomed. There are comfortable seats around the bar and in booths in the back area. Bar seats were occupied by locals who made room for us in a friendly way- everybody seemed to know one another. Great selection of well-priced beer and spirits. When we visited a new kitchen was being installed so no food was available, however we had already eaten. While I was there a gent walked in with a can of what he vigorously maintained was the finest beer in the world and presented it to Kristal - sadly I've forgotten what it was called. Finding out will be another reason for going back next trip.
