Stumbled across this spot and stopped on for drinks. We loved the environment and met Memo the bartender and had a great time. They are also the only bar in the city to serve my scotch in a Glencairn glass, THANK YOU Memo! Good times

We were drawn in by the Delirium -- but stayed for the phenomenal staff. Melody was so engaging and charming. She went above and beyond to ensure all our needs were met. We live in the neighborhood and shall be back !!!

Really cool pub. Love the old British style decor, which brought back my memories Of hanging out in pubs during the damp days in the UK. Nice bartender… extra nice to me after I ordered stout. 😂
