Nice ambiance/decor to this place. Very clear and somewhat modern, but still plenty of nice wordwork. Service was pretty good and friendly. The prices are high, but it’s a bit more of an upscale bar/restaurant and it’s Pasadena. The beer list is not enormous, but does have solid options, though nothing terribly out of the ordinary. They do have a nice selection of spirits, which is nice too. Seemed like some good burgers and sandwiches, too. Perhaps not the most amazing place in terms of beer/selection, but it would be a nice place to hangout and have some drinks.

This is just a few yards from Raymond so it’s right on the walking path if you’re doing a pub crawl around Old Town. Inside you’ll find that "sophisticated" feel. The bar is all wooden and nice and they have a ton of whiskey to choose from. It reminds me of a less dumpy Daily Pint.

They seem to rotate the tap list quickly. When I was there a week ago they had some beers by Noble (of which I had a pint), a Sierra Nevada Pils, the Citra Pale from El Segundo, and some others that are not currently on the tap list. Right now they have bourbon Black from Allagash, Beachwood Melrose, and some less exciting choices like Avery White Rascal and New Belgium Blue Paddle. The service was good and the prices were high, though during happy hour it’s not bad (my pint was $5). I’d hate to see what this looks like when it’s packed but I’ll make sure to stop in again soon.
