The Tap House is a pretty ordinary brew-pub and sports bar inside, with the big screen panopticon blaring sports from every angle. There's a long bar, plenty of beers both familiar and slightly bizarre and tables of all sides. Where things get more interesting, however, is when you go outdoors.
First, the outdoor space is encased in a high black wall, as if this bar is actually a maximum security prison. In the middle there's a rather large firepit, which is nice but also means that a visit here is a throwback to the days where you returned from a bar smelling like a smoke bomb. There's a cornhole set a separate area for smoking that also has nice views over the far corner of the Pratt Campus.
There's also something I have never seen in my travels all over the country and the world - televisions on the outside. This way you can simultaneously get fresh air while watching the game. It's very silly but kind of charming.
The food here is quite ordinary, but enough to keep one satiated during the game.
