To the delight of bar-starved Uptown residents, this cozy spot offers 19 beers on tap, 12 wines by the glass, comfortable couches, a large-screen TV that folds away when the game is over and garage door–style front windows. Cleetus Friedman handles the menu, so expect better-than-average bar food like tacos, burgers and grilled cheese. There's a new brunch menu that leans Mexican, including solid chilaquiles and brunch drinks.
