Betty's is a small bar and restaurant in the middle of the Short North. There isn't a really obvious sign, at least in the daylight. It wouldn't be hard to walk past.

Betty's walls are covered with classic pin-up girls. It's an interesting theme, but I'm sure there are a few easily offended types who would find it distasteful, but why are you dragging them into a bar in the Short North?

The beer list isn't huge, but there's good quality beer to drink. It sounds like they rotate the taps pretty regularly, too. I had a glass of Two Hearted Ale, and it tasted very fresh and vibrant. I love a place with clean lines.

We ate brunch at Betty's. The food was breakfast basics, but twisted. I had an omelette with tasso that gave it a nice little kick. It was a well made, hearty breakfast.

This is a very likable bar. I wouldn't consider it a destination based only on the beer, but I wouldn't hesitate to stop in.

betty's and surly girl and there's one more I don't remember are owned by the same people in town... but they wear different hats and appeal to different crowds.

Beer selection at betty's was 12 taps and a gaggle of bottles, there were a few there that I had...

the walls are covered with pinup girl pictures, so it's a very nice joint to bring the ladies. very betty page-esque. the bar itself isn't that big, 15 person bar, seating for another 20, so this place can have just a few people in it and be full.

Bartenders were friendly and flirty, kept my glass full as I went here for dinner saturday.

I had the turkey and potatoes, just what I needed... the food was very good imo...

again, this is closer to the busy end of short north, so leave your car at the hotel and use their bus system if you're in the business or arena districts to get to where you need to be in the short north.
