    Just returned ......as predicted another LOUD sports bar type place hallow wooden acoustics can't even hear who your talking to.. they served horrible frozen microwaved snacks...and terrible cocktails....I left my Margarita & wifey only drank half of her Cosmo....we both opted for some Bottles brews....and left the party early to go out for dinner.

      This location seems to be one of those haunted spaces that changes hands every 2 or 3 years, hosting one forgettable establishment after another.

        It looks like this one might stick - they get pretty packed on weekends.

          I went there once and walked straight out. It seems a little...douchier than the joints I like in LB with their fake lines and velvet rope. I'll stick to celtic, jack's and ron's for my drinking.

            "a little...douchier than the joints I like" - great, just great!

              haha, so true. I only went there late night on a weekend, reminded me of the overrated packed college bars I used to frequent at Rutgers, except I don't think they had any good drink specials... And being called Draft House is pretty misleading, I can't remember what beers they had on tap, exactly, but I remember it not being impressive.
