I was walking from Locust Tap to Iowa Tap Room and spotted this place along the way. It looked too inviting to not stop in.

The main level is up a short flight of stairs, the lower level wasn’t open so I didn’t get to see what was downstairs. There’s also a patio around back that I didn’t notice until I was leaving.

Unlike what the outside presents, I wouldn’t quite call this a dive bar. A little too nice, and the beer selection a little too good.

Amenitites that I noticed included a handful of video games (including video slots/poker), a popcorn cart, and an ATM. I have no idea what might have been downstairs.

I had a ChewBOCKa German-Style Doppelbock by Confluence Brewing Company
