Yeah, its not a great as it thinks it is, to be honest. A little too cool for it's own good. The layout is unsual, but not relaxing. Slim Jims on Upper Street - or even Big Red on Holloway Road - are better approximations of an American style bar.

On a side note, the petulant argumentative attitude of michaelbuffalo is rather off putting, I must say. There are ways to get your point across, inform and educate about your venue, rather than sounding off and telling people to go to Wetherspoons. If you're like that on the internet, what are you like serving behind the bar? Manners, man.

I also find the phrase "boutique beers" irksome. Overall, a middling 6/10, alas.

I have patronised this establishment on two occasions, purely for the extremely enjoyable music quiz. The venue is a large square room with an unusual layout - tables and chairs on opposite sides, sofas and low tables in the centre and the bar occupying an entire third side, bizarrely positioned against one of the street facing walls. Huge selection of bourbon whiskey, if that's your thing, Amstel 3.20, Guinness 3.40 and a fridge stocked with small bottles of American ale. I can't remember the name of the one bottle I tried - it was delicious, but expensive at 3.60 for roughly half a pint. I'm not sure what MichaelBuffalo means by 'boutique beers'. I saw Sierra Nevada Pale Ale in the fridge which I drank on draught on Saturday.
It is patently obvious to me that BitterShurn is referring to Real Ale, something MichaelBuffalo clearly knows nothing about. I don't recall seeing an ale of any description on a handpump so would love to know what he's talking about.
Largely young clientele that look like they're in bands (and may well be) and yes, on both my visits there were a number of young men with Howard Moon-style growths on their upper lips.
I shall return to this bar (I can't really call it a pub) again for it's excellent quiz, but unless you have a lot of money, I would avoid.

MichaelBuffalo - I think I understand what you have written there, though it is customary to use capital letters where convention dictates. Since you have found the time to log on to Wikipedia and look up the word 'draught', I will clarify. As a beer drinker, when I say 'draught' I of course mean unpasteurised cask beer, hand-pumped. I apologise humbly for being unclear. I did not notice your solitary handpump. Where was it and what was it pumping? Perhaps you could also write on this site how much it costs? I am happy to learn of your great wealth in thinking that 10.70 is a good price for two tiny bottles of pale ale and one pint. I suspect that your good fortune in being so well off will cushion the blow when the pub has to close or change ownership due to the prices. Your prices far exceed any nearby pub I can think of. What on earth is a boutique import anyway?

Warning to any other users of this website - members of staff may be artificially boosting the rating of this venue. I'm sure you'll make your own decision, but be aware...

bittershurn, you really need to get out more! 10.70 is actually pretty normal considering the bottled beers you bought were boutique imports from the states not available in your local tesco!
and draught beer is ANY beer from a tap and there is an ale on a handpump and always has been. get your facts straight! john smiths and tetleys has never been there and never will be. Are you sure you went there?
