This is just up the street from Toronado but itís one of those places that Iíve never had the inclination to visit since Iím usually sticking to the usual places (Toronado, Magnolia, etc). Divisidero is an interesting walk at night. Lots of bars and restaurants open including a number of cafes. Seems like a friendly area. The Fly bar seems to be popular. Itís more of a lounge really, a noisy busy lounge. The inside is pretty dark and crowded but getting to the bar was not difficult. I was pretty let down when I got there though. Ten taps to choose from but many of them arenít very exciting. Trumer, Sierra Nevada, Speakeasy, and Paulaner. All good choices but I donít need to hike an extra mile to get them here. The service was friendly enough but it was a noisy bar so the idea is to get your drink and interact with the other customers. I wasnít all that interested in spending $7 on a Big Daddy so I opted to scroll past. I didnít look at the food.

I think there are a few locations now, so I am only rating the one near the Regency Ballroom (aka you should go here before a show).
Pretty cool place, plenty of room, good crowd. Beers were +/- $4 12 oz bottles with > a dozen available. Taps were limited, about five, and about $5 a pint. Generous happy hour. Food was a bit hit or miss. pizza >>> nachos. I knocked a few ratings in on my phone so availability didnít fill in...Rouge, Stone, Deschutes...solid variety, but all stuff you could get in one of the awesome beer stores in town.

There were some creepy paintings surrounding the walls of the large faces of women. ugly. also I think it might be a bad neighborhood. They had like 7 beers on tap I had never heard of and even more in bottles Iíd never tried. I didnít know what to choose! SpeakEasy beers on tap are a prime choice! 20- and 30-somethings shared cigarettes outside. more laid back and attired people - jeans, sweatshirts, sneakers. The barís purple and burgundy walls are hung with artwork, including a mural by the back pool table. Ceiling fans, one TV and festive, piŮata-style lamps create an eclectic vibe. Service is extremely friendly and told me all you could ever want to know about the beers I was trying. cheap and amazing sangria - good looking pizzas. Thereís plenty of seating in the front and back, including pea-green booths and thrift-store movie seats. The front tables look out onto main street. steady after-work crowd for happy hour (Mon-Fri, open to 5:30pm; Sat-Sun, open to 6:30pm). Deals include half-off puffy pizzas and $3 sangria, sake cocktails or draft beer.
NOTE: does not serve hard alcohol because it doesnít have the license. tries to be creative with a ton (like 30) sake cocktails. EX: smoothie-like 50 (sake, pineapple juice, soy milk)
