Arriving with my Mom in tow and with mere minutes to spare before the close of Happy Hour at the Greyhound, a new craft beer, wine and cocktail bar in Highland Park (near the big Highland Theater sign), I order up a Cismontane Blacks Dawn and a salad. The total for me: $8.
Once you slap yourself for being too late to order a second round, you realize the place is loud. Really loud. With ebbs and flows as the pulsing music finishes one song and people don’t have to scream over the music until the next song comes back on.
The decor is nice and so is the tap list. On the night of my visit they had a goodly number of solid choices along with a rotating duo of hoppy selections. I would put it solidly in the B category. It isn’t one of those lists that has a nod to craft which is what I call D, nor is it the national easy choices of a C. I will re-visit and see if that grade is fair when another set of beers goes on tap but it is good though not as strong as Maximiliano or the Hermosillo.
I wasn’t a fan of the decibels though it didn’t bother my mom a whit. That is what happy hour prices can do.
