Maybe I am starting to sound like an alcoholic, but this spot is too good not to mention.
In Our Time is an interesting mix of radio station, craft beer bar, bookshop, art gallery, restaurant, and live music venue. Frankly, I’m not sure what to call it.
Let me try to explain. In one corner, a DJ is recording his radio show to be aired on the web. Next to that is a stage, which sometimes hosts live bands or what appears to be a local talk show. The tables for guests in the center of the room seem to be directly transplanted from a library.
The servers will happily pour you one of quite a few craft beers from the large refrigerator on the other side of the tables. (We had a lovely English cider.) They will also serve you one of the pastas or fried dishes off the menu.
In addition, the front of the building houses a souvenir shop/book store. Upstairs is an art gallery, which is currently hosting some sort of cat exhibit. There is also additional bar seating on the second floor.
On top of all of it, In Our Time is located in one of the trendiest areas of the city, Pier 2. This makes In Our Time an ideal location to start a night out or have a quiet beer with friends. It is also certainly one of the best venues in the area. So, be sure to check the website for upcoming shows.
