I think I’m in love. Great beer selection. Like a beer speakeasy joint. Cash only. Can I move in tomorrow?
As I wandered into this subterranean haunt I needed to adjust my eyes for a minute before I walked into a wall, chair, person……. It’s damn dark in here!
It was early evening on a weekday and the place was packed. It’s small and narrow so scoring a spot at the bar is at a premium. Almost claustrophobic like. If you can belly up to the bar hold onto that spot for dear life. I got lucky and grabbed a stool along the candlelit bar. Mine! Mine! Mine!
Was greeted by the friendly barkeep who handed me a menu of their extensive quality craft beer list. Had to move a candle on top of it to actually be able to read it. Eff that – I turned on the flashlight ap on my phone so I could see. All beer here, no hard liquor. For those complaining that there is no booze here please head on over to the multitude of other cookie cutter bars in the city to get your Cosmo or Jager shots, as the beer list here is pretty eclectic and wonderful. Not a place for loud groups or frat buddies partying hard, but more for a drink with a friend or date who can appreciate a good beer over dimly lit conversation. It can get a bit warm in here though so be warned.
As I stated, the 124 Old Rabbit Club offers a terrific selection of beers from imports to domestics. They even have the specialty glasses that some are to be poured into. So key! I quite enjoyed my Belgian beer while listening to old punk and indie rock. A beer here is not on the cheap side, but you are paying for quality, and the devine atmosphere that helps keep the bridge and tunnel riff raff away. So worth it for a few extra shekels.
Take a chance on this craft brew emporium secretly hidden in plain sight, and scurry down the rabbit hole into the catacombed madness that is Alice in Beer Wonderland. Dark, a bit seedy, maybe even reminds one of a sex club that you have innocently wandered into, but are willing to stay awhile and explore what they have to offer.
