Great Place to Party – This is a fun spot, as a bartender at a sports bar I try to stay away from Bars on my days off, but some how the Draft is very different. It has an easy crowd and a friendly staff. The real reason to go, is for the entertainment. On tuesdays they have a partyoke with DJ Nice and its so....not your average karaoke its young and fresh music and the people can sing. On saturday nights DJ Nice is back and Rocks the place, He is so....amazing! It gets so....live that it feels like a club. Many of my friends prefer to go there now then the hot clubs in Hollywood. So next time your looking for a fun place, check out the Draft on tuesday or saturday nights, you wont be disappointed!
Atmosphere is awesome!! – If you are looking for an awesome bar with a great vibe then this is your place! Constantly offering great deals to make the customers happy :) You can always plan on them covering ALL sports so if you are in the valley and looking for a new place GREAT place to check out I would head The Draft Bar and Grill!
Rude Service – I was part of a large group on a busy night. Gratuity had been added to our bill ($54.00) and I added some extra into my portion of the bill. But, I guess that wasn't enough. The server actually ASKED for more.
Dudes with Attitude and no ladies – So we stop in for a beer one night, and are sitting at the bar. My SO can't see the names on tap so asked what they were pouring, and the bartender just replies "read the names." If she wasn't blind without her contact she would have. When i come out of the bathroom she just wants to leave, but I persuade her to move to a table.
Waitress comes over to take our order, but SO is in the bathroom. She comes out grossed out by how dirty it was. And with no women in the place except her and the waitresses, she insists we leave. It was too loud with the game broadcast to talk anyway.
Not coming back.
over rated and over crowed – My boyfriend and I went here on Sunday to watch our team play since we unfortunately have Time Warner instead of Direct TV and I think every person in the valley without the Sunday ticket was there too. After waiting 45 minutes for a table to leave we had to take one outside in the 110 degree weather, with no breeze because they have put up plastic for the outdoor "walls" It was way OVER CROWDED, very SMOKEY, the service was super SLOW, it took 1 HOUR to get our food, 30 MINUTES to get our drinks and our chicken fingers, the main dish, never even came! The waitress had an attitude and was completely aloof to what was going on. Even the manager was cocky and pretentious. To say the least WE WERE NOT IMPRESSED. Sorry to everyone who seems to be a fan.
The Best Sports Bar In The Valley! – i started going during the lakers playoffs and now its my local spot...great atmosphere...made me enjoy the games so much more! Can't wait for the upcoming football season!
great music & fun environment!!!! – saturday nights at this bar are soooo much fun! everytime my friends & i go there we always have a terrific time. the drinks are delicious & CHEAP!!!! the bartenders are also friendly & quick...what more can you ask for?!?! lol i would recommend this bar to anyone who likes to have a good time!
Dive bar with rude bartenders – Was there as part of a large party and they totally ripped us off. We were supposed to get 1/2 price appetizers and the bill came at full price.
We were supposed to have music - and they played some fight - for more than 3 hours.
Food is standard dive bar fried bar food - not better or worse than elsewhere.
Staff was the real problem. Waitresses were nice - and nice looking, but the bartenders need to learn some manners. There is no excuse for rude behavior.
Not customer service focused!!!! – The waitress attending us was very nice--too bad she works for a place that did not honor it's commitments to the group. We had i'd say about 80 people (maybe more) there for a party and the promises on drink prices, as well as music were all of a sudden changed by Tim (i think the owner)!!! Bad management!!! Seriously in times times like these you want to keep customers happy and not with a bad taste in their mouth! How do you expect to stay in business if you don't know how to treat people and especially people that bring you very large groups!!!
The bathrooms were GROSS!!! There were also signs saying beware as they may overflow! WTF??!
We left and moved to The FIFTH across the street... what an improvement.
The night at least wasn't totally ruined by that awful place. The Draft S**ks!!!
