This is a must-visit for people who find themselves in Southside Bethlehem. There is a nice, selective bottle selection as well as a few taps, all of which come with proper glassware (you are paying for it!). When you walk in, three stairs below street level, you immediately enter a run-down, abandoned bookstore with a red curtain behind the register in the back left corner. Behind the curtain, a time capsule awaits. Chic 1920’s decor, very dim-lit bar and lots of red velvet. They often have jazz bands play here, though I’ve yet to catch one perform. The space is small, so I could see how capacity could be reached quickly if a band were to play. The service seems to be better at the bar than in the lounge area. Beers on the menu are categorized by flavour, not style, which is nice, as styles have been increasingly obscured, past the point of recognition in some cases. This is a definitely a date spot. Don’t come here to get rowdy or watch a game.
