I dig the vibe at Hi Hat Public House. I love the beer (and beer prices), the friendly service and the ambiance. It reminds me of a small bar in Chicago … or Bruges. An intimate mom-and-pop place for beer-loving locals where out-of-towners can feel instantly at home.
The food does less to impress. And maybe that’s because Hi Hat doesn’t quite seem to know what it wants to be when it comes to dining. The menu offerings straddle the line between traditional pub grub and elevated bistro fare. The result is something closer to an upmarket sports bar than a refined pub with excellent food like Hopfields.
