Opened in 2012, Mongoose vs. Cobra has made a huge impression on the beer scene. The bar focuses on craft beers and signature cocktails. Picnic-style tables and stuffed cobra and mongoose set the décor at this midtown bar.
The knowledgeable bartenders serve up a menu of more than 40-plus rotating draught brews. That's right, 40 — from Goose Island and Great Divide brews to Fratelli Branca's Fernet, there's a brew for everyone at the table. As for the cocktails, you can expect anything from a Bourbon Hot Toddy to a French 75.
The casual joint is welcoming to all, especially the liteary types: be on the lookout for the the “Charles Club," "a drinking and literature club that will surely prove legendary."
