Beer lovers unite at Le Falstaff, a welcoming venue that serves up over one hundred and thirty imports from Belgium, the Czech Republic, Mexico, and everywhere in between.
Wooden walls and booths, tiled floors, hanging football jerseys, and vintage beer signs give the place a traditional pub atmosphere, as do the students and young professionals clustered around the high steel tables, savoring their German lagers or studying the chalkboards for new brews.
Popular with sports fans, the bar gets a decent crowd of long-time regulars on game days, although the suds-and-sandwich bunch usually gives way to a more upbeat clientele in the evenings, when post-grads and work buddies get together to pound beer cocktails like the Black Velvet – a mix of champagne and Guinness – before moving on to a club.
Saturdays and Sundays bring a packed daytime scene as beer addicts jostle for space at the busy bar, while hipsters cram the booths to play cards and nosh on croque monsieurs.
A comfy traditional pub with a decidedly modern twist, Le Falstaff is a good bet for beer connoisseurs looking for both something old and something new.
