Stopped here on Saturday at 1pm for some afternoon drinks and lunch. We chose to sit on the patio. It does not have the charm that the Chicago location does. It is quite large and even on the busy street the noise was minimal and easy to have a conversation. We asked for a beer menu and the list was ok. They had 10 or so varieties on tap; we did not get a bottle list.

The inside was very nice. Nice enough for a dinner out. The bar was also large and nicely done. It was completely empty at 1pm on Saturday. My next visit will be on a Friday or Saturday night. I am guessing there will be a much larger & livelier crowd.

Stopped here yesterday on my way out to the airport. It's located on the corner of a shopping center parking lot, where Binny's resides. The lighting in the area could have been better, but it was my first time in the area, and the staff at Binny's pointed me in the right direction.

There are 2 entrances, one on the right to the bar with a vintage "Cocktails" sign and lit "Sheffields" box sign, and one in the front with a covered awning. There was a large new neon sign on Thatcher, which I didn't see coming off Belmont into the shopping center.

The atmosphere was dark and cozy, there was an enclosed modern gas fireplace built into the wall, low globe lights, and dark wood everywhere. The bar was U-shaped and fairly small compared to the dining area. It's primarily a restaurant (new large expanded menu: entrees- ribeye, salmon, sandwiches, salads, apps, pizzas), i'd say that it would be a nice place to take a date or go out for dinner. Darius was the bartender and he was really friendly and knew their beers. The beer list was printed with detailed descriptions. There were actually 24 taps, with 2 taps of each draft beer, a possibility of expanded tap selection in the future (who knows). Bells, Surly, GLBC, Allagash White on tap, FFF in bottles, lots of New Holland and MI stuff. There were some groups in the dining area, and some old timers at the bar, left over from when this place was Dappers. They said they are doing their best to educate their crowd on craft beer, which is a new thing for the area it seems.
