We went to a bar called Nocturnem in downtown Bangor for Christopher’s birthday. The bar was small but had two rooms- one was the actual bar and one contained seating to watch local bands. I liked the mixed crowd. There were a few older people, a few younger people, a few locals, and a few visitors.
The food was also pretty good. Christopher and I both had hamburgers. They had a slightly larger collection of drinks than other places in this area, but still a lot less than California.
Overall I would say if you are looking for somewhere to grab a drink on a Friday night (or Wednesday in our case), Nocturnem is a good place to go.
