Next it was time to visit The Ginger Man. The Ginger Man is very close by to my previous stop and had a similarly electric buzz going on. The noise level was similar but was driven more by animated conversations than any football fandom or strumming strings. No live music but many lively people.
The décor here was much different. Contrast Rattle N’ Hum’s DIY collage/homage to everything beer to The Ginger Man’s dark woods, framed beer posters and the ginger-orange glow of its bartop lamps. That’s right—bartop lamps. Very cool.
