My mother was in town, and The Bull had live music for the evening. I knew from previous visits that The Bull is a low key and lovely venue to have a beer or glass of wine and just sit and visit or listen to acoustic acts. I also enjoy that the clientele is varied, including people of different ages... More

The bar itself is cute and cool to hang out in. The drinks are just a tad overpriced and not in large variety.

This is a small space BUT well laid out and easy to maneuver around the bar area. Lots of good beer and wine choices, plus the folks were fabulous!

I enjoy The Bull and love the music that comes through the doors. It is strictly a wine and beer bar, do not expect hard liquor, as with many of the newer places in Gainesville. It is a small venue, but can be very nice just for getting a glass or pint with a friend. Can be loud depending on... More

love the beer, wine and tee variety that they offer. And they have life music on thee weekends, the only cons might be how small the place is and the fact that is a beer bar with only one single person restroom.

There is no whiskey at this bar. They dont even serve domestic beer, just overpriced IPAs. I hear its a restaurant too, but the few things on the menu are vegan. Just go next door to looseys they have good burgers and cheap drinks. If you want good expensive beer go around the corner to stubbies. To its credit though... More

This place is great. It's relatively new but looks like it's been there for a long time. Their coffee, sandwiches, bagels, quiches, and pastries are good and not too expensive. They have a nice selection of micro beers. There's bench seating and WIFI. It's a good place to park yourself on a rainy day with your laptop or go to... More
