It's very nice, modern, and well thought out. It's in a bowling alley, although it's a separate entrance. Great beer selection. Good bar food. That said,The service could be better. I've been there when it's busy and the bartenders are in short supply.

They did an amazing job redoing the Spare Time Lounge, and they do have a huge beer selection. BUT.... that beer is EXPENSIVE!!! You can get the same beer at other local watering holes for $1-$1.50 less. Won't go back for those prices
