Success! Thanks for posting your review of The Map Room. You’ve done the world some good today.

went for 21st bday

I went to the maproom for my 21st birthday and was treated at the door with a happy birthday whichwas quite nice. with a group of about 8 the place was packed and we had to stand in the back which was also not the worst. getting a beer was a bit tough but we managed. after about 7-8 fairly strong beers I was defintely half in the bag and was kicked out because of it. Im 5050 on this because I dont think i was that dr... view more

This bar is the worst bar! The bouncers think single girls are harmful and demand to be thrown out. Just went there in a dignified setting and got thrown out for leaving the bar and coming back in because we tripped at the step to get in the bar. The way we were treated was unacceptable. If you have any dignity you will not go to this bar! The bouncers treat you like third class citizens. I am certain there were peop... view more

Beers great, employees leave alot to be desired.

Map room has a great selection of beers, I was in beer heaven. Even though the bartender and his female counter part were not very friendly, I didn't go in to make a best friend with him or even think of taking her home. He does need a little help in pouring a beer with limited head. One thing he did do, was to suggest a wonderful I.P.A. tap beer. I did not find the place loud or juke box out of control but we also w... view more

Poor Service, Bad Atmosphere

Good luck trying to actually get a drink here - the bartenders are rude and slow. They also poor way too much head. Quite a rip for the price you pay. On top of that, the obnoxiously loud music makes it difficult to properly enjoy the quality beer selection. The menu looks nice, but I was very disappointed.

Drink your beer, shut up and get out.

When you have the best beer list in the city, and they probably do, apparently you don't need to bother attracting return visits with good service. I considered myself a partial regular, always tipped well (well over 20% in cash), never overstayed my welcome and have brought many out of towners to this establishment. Lately it's all changed - there is now a palpable nervous discontent amongst staff which seems to ste... view more

Cold Shoulder

After sending an e-mail on January 12 to the Map Room, letting them know that our pub crawl would be making its 16th annual visit on Sat, Feb 2, we were quite dismayed to be refused service when we arrived yesterday. I asked the bartender what happened that he would not pour anyone a beer? He said ""owner's policy not to serve unannounced pub crawls."" I explained that we had notified Map Room that we were coming and... view more

A Night to Forget

The place has an extensive beer selection, both on tap and in bottles. However, if the staff has no clue how to properly pour any of the drinks, or any idea how to tell you what any of the drinks might be like, it is kind of hard to enjoy your experience. We tried to make the best of an unfriendly situation, but in spite of our efforts, they not only overcharged us for our tab, but charged our card TWICE for the same... view more

what imporant here? the outstanding beer selection.

in response to the last review.... hm... it really sounds like the bartenders did what every bartender dreams of doing when a simple request of theirs (mind you they're not usually the ones making the rules anyways) is met with unnecessary argument. lots of bars ask for i.d.'s to hold. \r \r the beer selection is diverse and delicious, and the staff is very knowledgeable about the beer - if you have a kind of beer in... view more

Exceptionally Rude Staff

I had heard that the Map Room was a great spot - so when a friend was in town from NYC, my boyfriend and I thought it would be a nice place to check out. It was a busy Friday, and I went over to grab a corner near the pool table as my friend and my boyfriend went to get drinks. A few minutes later, they came over to me empty handed and told me we were leaving. Apparently, when my friend went to pay with her credit ca... view more

I'll keep this short, almost ANY and EVERY beer that is domestically made and/or can be imported into the US is HERE!!! Over 500+ varieties of beer from around the world plus about 12 taps to choose me, you can go around the world of beer in 1 night (just not all 500 beers at once though =) ). No wine, no food (except for some bar mix here and there), just BEER, tvs, and 2 pool tables for your entertainm... view more
