A remarkable gastropub menu (garlicky grilled artichokes, wings with fennel-infused hot sauce and blue cheese) makes this comfy pub, ensconced in a handsome Prohibition-era bank building, reason enough to venture to the Valley. An intriguing lineup of craft and specialty bottled beers, along with its own cocktail recipes and wine by the glass, are reasons to linger. Check the website to see what’s in store that night—it might be live jazz or rock, a DJ, a trivia contest, or a burlesque show. (Some require a cover charge).
