This place has a little of everything going for it. It's in a great location in downtown Bangor. The selection of beer is unbelievable and the staff is incredibly knowledgeable about every beverage on the menu!! They offer the best grass fed burgers and to top it all off they have live entertainment. Limited seating so, show up early and... More

The proprietors both man and dog are there to welcome you.The beer selection is outstanding and I am newly enjoying the food, which can be eclectic but always delicious. Very fairly priced with good service.

We stopped in here for a late dinner and drinks. I like tart beers and the the selection was excellent. The food was also so darn good! We were traveling and I'm looking forwards to a return trip just for more pretzels.

NEVER disappointed here! My husband and I have been coming here for years now and not a single time have we been disappointed with a thing. Keep doing what you're doing, Nocturnem!

First off be straight forewarned downtown Bangor is like a ghost town and has but a mere 2-4 places to visit. After 9 pm locals shut themselves off from socializing and it's literally dead in all establishments including Nocturnem. We visited on a Friday night and I was truly amazed to see literally sparse population out and about. I don't... More

My wife and I had stopped into Bangor for the night on our way to Portland and made it into Nocturem late. We were greeted by an incredibly nice employee who, upon noticing... More

I am an avid beer taster and I have to say that the Illegal Ale and the Blueberry were some of the best beers that I have had! The server was funny and very kind and the food was gone at the end of the meal because it was so delicious! The atmosphere was great too! Lord of the Rings... More
