K, I dig this place. First and foremost it is a pool hall. That is why I go there - there arenít many in the city anymore. The tables are solid and not crammed together. Secondly is the beer selection. Honestly I cannot tell you what is on tap as I always go to the bottles and that says something about the tap selection for a beer nerd. THe bottle selection is very good for Edmonton - one of the better ones. The beer fridge is accessible to view and youíll find this like NOrthCoast Old Rasputin, Brooklynís and DDCís. The manager is alwayas trying to get new things in and does from time to time and they are usually good stuff. Seems like they are slowly phasing out the massive selection of lagers from strange countries that all taste the same. She knows her beer pretty good but the rest of the staff really doesnít know shit but it doesnít really matter. Go look at the menu or the fridge for yourself. The food is very good for a pool hall locale but this place is pretty big with tons of seating for non-pool peeps, booths along the windows. Itís very open. Gets freaking busy on Friday and Saturday eves so plan accordingly. Decent place to watch hockey and UFC. The music is not blaring but usually perfectly loud. Who doesnít want to play pool and drink a glass of 10% stout???

Good place to catch the hockey game or UFC fights while actually getting a decent selection of beer.
Food has always been good - but never stellar. Never been served something disgusting.
Lots of pool tables and room to host larger groups.

great place. good food, and they actually have stuff on their menu beyond typical bar/pub fare. beer selection is surprisingly good. obviously inflated prices since youíre purchasing beer at a bar, however, the prices are still quite reasonable having that in mind. great atmosphere. be warned, they have very limited glasses for the types of beer they sell. they used to, but iím pretty certain that people were ripping them off. staff isnít too knowledgeable on the beer, but a good place for a starting point of trying some different beer (if you havenít already had them). and i havenít been in another bar that has the same selection. and once in a while, they do bring in seasonal beers.

Great find downtown. Best beer selection Iíve found in a while, lots of european treats. And that does include the servers. Gorgeous and friendly staff. Good food, lots of pool tables, and a modern feel.
Must go back.
