Great atmosphere! Settle in for a drink, conversation, and if things get slow, a board game. Fireplace at the back make the oldest bar in the city all the nicer.

Beloved Pub, darts, Popcorn, craft beer, board games, occasionally live music. Oldest Pub in Berkeley. Mainly students and locals, normally well attended. I would not recommend it for the food.

Best bar within walking distance. Super fun place with board games, darts, pool tables and a great beer menu (draft and bottled).

A very unique pub. Only in here would you find a bunch of people drinking and playing boardgames at the same time. I love the cozy ambiance. Only wish the tables were a little cleaner. Other than that, no complaints from me. The crowd is pretty chill and it is an awesome place to hang out with friends.

A mix of college students and locals, they got board games behind the bar, the games are always on, and there are darts in the back. If you dont have fun here its your own fault. Great service too. You can also bring your own food in if you want.

Local from Berkeley, California, USA

Cosy and yet spacious, slightly cluttered, and often well populated.

A full bar, and a very substantial beer selection, with some trappist ales, some nitrogen pushed drafts.

There is a limited food selection, usually a pizza or chili. If you ask, they will generally let you bring in food from Everett and Jones BBQ across the street. And the refillable fresh popcorn!

For fun, there is usually acoustic jass on Thursday nights, a pool table in the back, and 6 or so impressive dartboard stalls. Sundays used to have a pretty intense trivia contest event, but as with the jazz, check their website for schedules and stuff.
