Don't go to Arkham for the food--they make no pretense about that. But they have a good range of beers, good specials on shots, and the drinks are generous and priced fairly. Brattleboro has some good beer pubs, but Arkham is the only place in town that's like an urban bar in a cool neighborhood--you can make new friends easily,... More

Cheap and cheerful beer specials, always something whacky showing on the TVs and friendly staff along with an interesting array of regulars make this a fun little place to hang out.

My favorite whole in the wall bar in Brattleboro. Get a unique crowd and prices are fair. When I visit I always stop by

I love Arkham. If you don't get it, you just don't get it. I love a good dive bar, and Arkham is easily the best in town. :) There is nothing "contrived" about it.

Tries hard to be a dump. Contrived and awful. Beer is cheap, but its lousy beer. Bar area tiny. Only one bathroom for all.

Arkham is a bar with a weird set-up with the bar in a little room so the bartender can't see what's going on in the rest of the place which is mostly just noise, air hockey, and a sometimes "sketchy-looking" (including myself) crowd at the front door which is really more like a back door.

Arkham is relatively new to me, just having moved to Brattleboro. A friend suggested we go here after a zumba class for a nice cold beer so we checked it out. The atmosphere can only be described as what a 17 year old would decorate a bar like if he had one, with posters, stickers and graffiti clad walls. There... More

It seems that every bar these days is trying to be fancy, upscale, and exclusive. That's fine. I like those places, but not all the time. Sometimes I just want to have a beer or a shot of Bourbon and I don't want to feel like I need to be on my best behavior. Arkham is exactly that! My wife... More

With inexpensive drinks, a super-social crowd, games. movies, comic-themed decorations and the Bruins or Pats game always on the screen, what's not to love! If you are looking for a more upscale date environment, head around the corner to Metropolis for awesome cocktails and a little bit of peace, but if you want raucous excitement, ball jars over flowing with...
