Went in here since I was doing some work across the street. It was early evening, and there were less than ten people hanging out. At night i've walked by and it was packed and loud.

There's a flashy, gaudy Vegas-style sign out front that's a real eyesore in this neighborhood. A corralled area of patio tables outside, with large windows facing the street, and a black exterior facade. Once inside the corner entrance door, there are a few tables near the windows and booths on the side. Long L-shaped bar with 2 groups of tap handles. Space was heavy on the interior-design, with upholstered wall panels and chic wallpaper. A weird little room in the back with a stripper pole...and polaroids of their female patrons in the men's room, classy. Oh, and something like 8 flatscreen tv's. Nightly dj's, so don't expect casual conversation. Trendy see-and-be-seen atmosphere, with a fake commercial "rock & roll" vibe.

Beer...their list is online, and exactly what was available in person. The list was posted outside the door too. Frankly their bourbon & rye selection was more impressive. They don't rotate taps or add limited beers, as far as i've seen. There are 2 tap towers with 8 taps each, and some shelves with bottles high on the back wall. Nothing especially limited or adventurous, just seems to be slightly better than average. They had Chimay, Ska, Lagunitas, 2 Rogue, Hacker-Pschorr, and a few others. Minus all the BMC and cool-kid retro cans, I counted 22 US craft and 22 quality imports, 44 quality bottle selections total. I had a Gumballhead draft for $5.

Overall this isn't a destination for beer, but you could probably survive if your group dragged you here.
