The Dry Bean Saloon

5 Dec

The Dry Bean is one of Northgate’s most unique bars. From it’s “shotgun house” set-up, to it’s menu full of shots, the Dry Bean is always a favorite. The Dry Bean is most famous for its elaborate list of shots, shooters, and drop-shots.

We stopped by the Dry Bean last night when we got to Northgate and I wasn’t impressed with the bartender. First off, bartender wasn’t friendly (which is a big no-no to me) and then he didn’t pour our shots correctly. This is the first time, though, that I’ve been displeased with my service here, so I won’t hold it against them.

The Dry Bean isn’t really set-up for you to hang around and socialize. Usually, it’s a get-in-get-out kind of place. The later you go, the more crowded it gets. Since the bar is so small, it can be a major pain to move around when it gets really packed.

If you’re going to this shot bar, I would suggest going early and getting a Pissed-off Japanese Minnow Farmer. It’s a great-tasting shooter that’s one of my favorites.
