Area professionals unwind here, as does the Gotham Rugby Club, so there’s not a lot of attitudinizing going on. It’s a hale-fellow-well-met sort of pub, and those who don’t grow roots at their stools can visit the back room, stocked with TVs, a pool table, dartboard and video-game console. Oversize leather booths are filled on Sundays with a passionate football crowd. All that’s missing is a kitchen and an outdoor deck, but the owners haven't overlooked that. A second-floor deck is slated for next year.
