If you are a lover of good beer, then you have come to the right place. Past the deceitfully underwhelming exterior, just a few steps down, you will find a softly lit brick-walled room, with a friendly ambiance and a good selection of beer. The interior is set in typical pub style, in other words, less looking, more drinking, and at the bar you will find beer from countries like England, Scotland, Belgium, Germany, the Czech Republic, among others.
A mind-boggling selection of about 60 imported bottled varieties will leave you spoilt for choice. But fear not, if you are having trouble deciding, the bartenders will help make up your mind on something that is just right. Oh, lest we forget, there are also three tap varieties, but, apparently, that’s not the specialty here.
There’s another bonus at Tsokol, which is not typical of any given bar – an original full-blown hot and cold starter menu. The food is great of its own accord, not just to be washed down with beer and forgotten about the next second. Scotch eggs are filling and properly seasoned, the perfect chopped herring is served just right on crusty dark bread with a slice of apple. The menu, while unorthodox for a bar, is going to be a pleasant surprise, just like everything here.
