Coasters Downtown Draught House 

Want to find a comfortable place to kick back and enjoy your favorite beer? Coasters Downtown Draught House features a nearly unlimited selection of finely crafted beers from around the world. Be sure to stop on Wednesday for Brewery Night and take home a free glass with the purchase of a beer from the featured brewery. 


Located in a remodeled home originally built in 1904, the warm and inviting atmosphere in Montero’s bar is the perfect place to enjoy delicious food and refreshing drinks, like the June Bug, Purple Rain or cherry lemonade swizzle.

“There are some really great places to go and drink,” says owner Andy Montero. “But our environment revolves around the fact that our bar is an extension of the restaurant. It allows for great conversation and company while enjoying a fun, fast-paced, high-energy vibe along with our great food.”
