Brokers’ fresh-pressed shirts and shiny leather shoes rule at this downtown alehouse, located on a quaint cobblestone block in the Financial District. After the markets close, the weathered wood floors get further scuffed by martini sippers and Coors Light chuggers, whose boisterous gabbing competes with a circa-1996 soundtrack (hello, Cranberries!). Later on, the bar evolves into a serene spot to grab a pint or lofty pub eats like Parmesan-crusted fries and a beer-battered grouper sandwich with tartar sauce.

Showed up with a party of 6 on a Monday night for after-work apps and drinks, and I'm glad I did!
We were promptly seated and served the first round - while I was feeling nostalgic and ordered a Sam Adams, my companions opted for some more intricate cocktails. The bartender knows how to make a mean Old Fashioned. The waitstaff seemed to be knowledgeable about the menu selections.
Our waitress was very personable and made it a point to learn everyone's name at the table which was kind of cool and extra-mileish. She also recommended the apps - brussel sprouts; asparagus (with truffle oil); and the beets, goat cheese, toasted pretzels dish. Everything was delectable and our group seemed to be happy with the order.
The music selection here is interesting - Salt'n Peppa, NERD, 50 Cent, Ciara, Britney... Definitely unusual for this type of a bar, but also welcome.
