Part of the the fun with going to this cellar bar is trying to find it.

Definitely worth a visit and very reasonably priced!

This place has a very cool
Vibe and interior and obviously a great selection of beers. My wife and I got excellent beer recommendations from the knowledgable bartender and really enjoyed this place!

If you like your bars to be crowded and full of cigarette smoke and a crush of bodies blocking your way to the bar this is the place. I only managed to get one drink and gave up on the wait and the smoke.

We read a lot of good reviews and thought this bar sounded different so we set out to find out. It turns out we had passed it multiple times between our rental apartment and seeing the sights. The first time we actually tried to find it it wasn't open. We went back and had a beer later and liked the ambience. Then we went to order another beer and waited at the bar for ten minutes before realizing the bartender was on his phone in the entrance. We were the only people there and he looked at us a few times, so we left. It could have been a one time thing, but we were only there the one time, so I can rate it higher.

That little fellow on the door, there? The monk with the chalice? Come back in the evening and the doors to his cellar will be open wide and welcoming you in. You'll step down into a candle-lit, hops-strewn, atmospheric den of beer indulgence. Featuring an impressive beer menu, great prices, and knowledgeable staff (the owner is particularly hospitable!). Not sure what you want to drink? Ask a bartender. They may ask you what kind of flavours you prefer, and they'll recommend a beer to your taste. Ask for a little more information about a beer you enjoy, and you're bound to get an interesting story about it. The crowd is on the younger side, but don't let that dissuade you if you fall outside that demographic (we didn't!). It's a fun place, full of personality with a great vibe - finding it is half the fun. It's open late, and if you're lucky, you'll snag a corner with some lounge chairs!
