Friday, December 3rd, 2010—Bar 327

Day 327—Thursday, December 2nd, 2010

Okay, I’ve had to work late and I found a bar called Revival while Googling around that’s not far from where I live. Normally I would just walk there, but since it’s late, I want to make sure I get there while it’s still open and don’t have to search around for another bar at this hour of the night, so I’m going to run outside and yell...


And baboom, here we are!

You're welcome! Thank you. Wait, strike that and reverse it.

It looks nice in here. A nice underground, candle-lit oasis.

Bartender Nicholas was quick with a Red Stripe and a flip of the bird.

John (left) is the owner of this fine establishment and here he is with Pedro who told me his favorite Woody Allen movie is, "Take The Money and Run." One of my favorites as well.

The bar from my point of view.

Here's the drafts available on tap.

Happy hour!

A long shot of the candle lit wooden bar.

Here's the back room of the bar.

These two were chilling out back here with beers and I found out that both of their name's are Adam. So I present, Adam Squared.

There's a lounge upstairs, let's go check it out.

Up the stairs...

Very nice!

Comfortable couches and chairs up here, but since it's late it's deserted. Let's go back downstairs.

Nicholas is busy behind the bar.

Here's John with Sarah and Peter.

The fellow on the left chose to hide behind my business card as he's a wanted man. On the left is Alex who manages the bar Antartica. He invited me to stop by there and then we had a laugh when I told him I already did last July. Once again proving it's a small world on this bar crawl.

And a parting shot of owner John and I. Cheers and goodnight, everybody!

Revival is an underground bar with an upstairs lounge and an outside terrace. The bar downstairs is dark an d candle-lit with a mural on the facing wall and a small back room with tables and chairs. There’s an upstairs lounge with make-out ready couches, chairs and windows overlooking 15th Street. The mood of the bar is chill with a handpicked soundtrack going on that runs the gamut from 60’s pop to punk to electronica. John the owner told me he takes pride in the music in the bar and says it’s anything you can imagine except for the stuff that’s on commercial radio.

There’s a full bar available with a decent selection of bottled and draft beers. Happy hour runs from 4pm to 8pm, Monday through Friday with five buck drafts, three dollar Bud and Bud lights, four buck well drinks and five dollar wine and cider.

129 E. 15th St. (Near Irving Pl.)

The candles makes the place very cool. Very decent happy hour prices too. The picture with the glasses hanging upside down should be on a cover to a book,,,its that good.

@Al: Glad you like the picture and bar, maybe it'll be the cover of the 365 book!

Oh my Marty ! ... did you get a new sweater for Christmas ??

December 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterGENE

@GENE: Ha ha ha! I found that in my closet and a couple people at work were amazed that I wore something that wasn't completely black!

December 3, 2010 | Registered Commenter365 Beers

Dark and candle lit...what more could you ask of a place to go to on a date?

December 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJaws the Cabbie

Wow! Revival looks cool. I love places that make their own music mixes, and I also like it when a bar hangs their glassware like that. You run the risk of a dumbass standing on his stool crossbar and crashing into them, but they bring the ceiling down and cozy up the place real nice. Great happy hour prices! And the lounge is sweet too - when I visit, I'll go up there and make out with my beer. Hey, by the way, it's a good thing you didn't press the 365 Card Man to show his eyeballs, because, judging by the rest of his face, he's actually Sylar from NBC's smash hit "Heroes." I forgot to watch after the first season, so I don't know what became of him, but when it first started out, that dude removed the brains right outta people's heads and shit! Who needs THAT?!

Looks like a nice cozy cave of a place. And I also LOVE the shot with the glasses!

December 3, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterkari

@raginrr: The audience drops out Fridays and the weekend, so I appreciate all of you who comment on those slow days, thanks everyone! Now I'm going out to my bar of the evening! It's the weekend in five minutes for the me!

December 3, 2010 | Registered Commenter365 Beers

@Raginrr: Mate, i've never been involved in a dance off before. I don't get to the site until after work now. So it's probably early morning in your part of the world.

@365: Nice threads!

December 4, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterClacky

Clacky you are funny as hell......I have not heard nice threads since watching reruns of Sanford and Son with Lamont and Rollo.

December 4, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterTerry

@Clacky: Thanks, it's my Sunday go to meeting duds.

@Terry: Sanford and Son wasn't Redd Foxx's finest moment, this was: http://twe.ly/rym

Love the pic of the 2 good looking guys...would have been awesome if you could have talked them into posing like the guys painted behind them on the wall. I really like the looks (glasses) behind the bar...might have to make a few changes to mine!
