Back a few years ago I used to enjoy coming to the bar/restaurant. They had good food, creative drinks using their own herbal infusions, live jazz, and an overall comfortable decor. Since that time this establishment has totally changed for the worse. None of the attractive features I just recounted can be found here at all. It's become rather seedy... More

You'll find sophisticated Jazz and other live musical fare here, sometimes even on weeknights! There's also an extra public room downstairs with comfortable seating, books, and a board game or two.

The drinks were great but the place seems to have gone down hill. It is like Arkem part two. There are very few places to sit, weird paintings on the fall and no couches downstairs. The bartenders were great and quick but it was super loud and not very classy. Still has the high-ish prices.

Metropolis was a very nice wine and cocktail lounge, pretty, elegant service, inventive drinks, good music. Now since it has changed it is almost as bad as Arkham. Ugly playground furniture, pole dancing, a real appeal to LCD (lowest common denominator).

After an amazing dinner at TJ Buckley's, my girlfriend and I wanted a nightcap so we made the short walk down the street to Metropolis. As soon as you walk in, there is a cool, underground sort of vibe to it. most of the booths and tables were occupied so we cozied up to the bar and were treated to... More

My boyfriend and I happened upon this spot. We loved the décor and intimacy of the space. And the bartender was gracious and accommodating. We hit this spot before dinner! Really enjoyed our experience. If we were locals, we would be back!

Metropolis was a lot of fun! Limited food, so I cannot say what the food was like, as we did not order food. HOWEVER, the drinks were so nice...Mostly infused drinks, made on premises. We missed the live entertainment, but I can imagine it was a lot of fun! This bar is such a really fun little bar. I highly... More

With a gently updated interior tucked on a side street just off the main drag in Brattleboro, this cool little spot surprises. The menu features tapas, which I did not try, but also has unique drinks made from house-infused spirits. My mandarin orange pomegranate martini was excellent and tangy. And the ginger basil drink was a dazzling green, but very... More

My husband and I stopped by Metropolis Wine Bar & Cocktail Lounge for a few drinks. They infuse their own concoctions and I must say that everything was very good. They also had a decent selection of wines. While the tapas they offer are limited, the ones we tried were very good. They also had live entertainment the night we... More
