I've been here several times for different concerts and just to hang out at the bar. It's always a good time. The staff are always friendly and it's a nice local spot.

I wouldn't come here for the food which has never been more than average (but, a full bar!) but it is an interesting mix of positive energy with lots of people and activities. Look it up, and see what's scheduled; many events of all kinds...More

I visited AS220 today almost accidentally. I was between appointments and seeking a quick lunch. AS220 fulfilled that purpose very well, and more. Not only was lunch served in a speedy fashion, but the food (chicken tacos) was enormously tasty. The staff we unfailingly genial,...More

Counter Service is casual but friendly. The Vegan Reuben sandwich is delicious! I'm an omnivore and would recommend this to meat eaters. I heard my counter mates raving about their Grilled Baffonis Chicken sandwich. The cafe counter is 20 -30 feet away from the bar....More

Great fun, cool atmosphere. My favorite food item is definitely the vegan mac n cheese. I swear it's better than real mac n cheese, I don't know how they do it. In terms of entertainment, there's always something going on whether it's an art show,...More

Always an excellent meal. Very informal surroundings. Decent service, maybe understaffed. I'd still recommend it highly.

Unique little place tucked into downtown offers a variety of options from a music scene to a bar and a restaurant. The food scene is focused on being locavore...farmer's markets and fresh options, plus a good vegan and vegetarian place. Then there's the local arts...More

I love AS220. They have an area for small concerts, there's a bar area and an area where they have small farmer's market type shops on the weekends. The people are friendly and there's always something unique going on there. I've been there for several...More

See and art show, take a dance class, share a meal with friends. AS220 has many things to offer many people. We had a great dinner there before heading over to PPAC. With a relaxed and hip vibe, you can have a fast or slow...More

I came here to see my friends perform a set on a Tuesday night. The layout offers a great opportunity for this place to be kind to musicians in that the bar/restaurant is a separate room with a door, so noise from other patrons shouldn't...More
