Basic no-frills bar with a fantastic draft list. There is no AC in the summer, but the windows do open. Old tables, with various old magazines floating around. The list is updated regularly on the chalkboards, and is very-well curated. You can bring in food from outdoors. A must if you enjoy craft beer.

This place has a great selection of craft beer. Plus there were snacks in the back of the room that were available for free. Meats, cheeses, breads, veggies and fruit. It was an unexpected surprise!! Friendly casual place!!

The people who manage the place are all kinds of awesome. They were caring and welcoming to us. The bartenders were a somewhat different story but we didn't care, we were there for the beer. And in no way would I say they were anything but polite. They just weren't very engaging. This place has an awesome tap list and... More

I really enjoyed my visit to the Map Room. The bartender was excellent, there was a huge variety of beer and the overall atmosphere was just great. We enjoyed this place so much that we really can't wait to go back!
