I totally want to like this place. This bar has an excellent selection of beers, at acceptable prices. But the ambiance just flat out sucks. I've been there a few times now, and they never fail to play Kiss 92 on the radio, which any foreigner knows only plays 10-12 songs on repeat, 10 of which are from the late 80s and early 90s. The staff is the real problem.
First there was a guy handing out flyers outside of NEX mall, saying this place had a re-grand opening with a special of 1 for 1 german larger pints all night long. Upon getting there the bartender says that was a mis-print and its not all night long, but one for one serving. (which if you look at the flyer, is clear as day its all night long). But whatever, mistakes happen, my date and I let it go and carry on.
I decided to 'check in' on yelp the evening I was there and the app said Free Premium German Larger with check in. I thought to myself 'awesome' since the promption we were there for was clearly not happening, and promptly showed it to the girl behind the bar. The bartender didn't believe it was real and called her partner/boss to confirm its legitimacy in front of me. Afterwards she said someone must of 'hacked' their system and done that as a joke (I'm not making this up), but she'd honor the offer all the same (so nice of her...cough cough). The food there is fine. Its whatever you buy at a super market and heat up in a toaster oven. No difference. Again I want to like this place, but between the staff looking at you annoyed as you ask for a beer, taking them away from facebook while behind the bar, the S***** music and supermarket food, its a mixed bag at best.
Oh and dont go by the times listed as open. Call ahead. There have been a few times they were listed as open, only to be closed and open later by 1 to 2 hours.
