The Black Penny
Upper Rampart Street, soon to be embellished by the extension of the streetcar line, is undergoing a slow renaissance. Attempting to kick-start that process is this delightful neighborhood spot, with its pub-style and surprisingly extensive beer menu. It's a casual affair, but it fast became a local favorite after opening in 2015, the exposed brickwork and spacious booths adding to the welcoming ambiance. The huge line of cans behind the bar speaks to their commitment to bringing as big a range of craft beers to people as possible, so take a while to peruse the choice and there's likely to be a few stand-out options.
