Bernadette’s is a new downtown bar with a 1970’s basement party vibe and if that sounds familiar, no, this is not Good Times At Davey Wayne’s. In fact, it’s kind of the antithesis of Davey Wayne’s. The space is small, unpretentious, easy to get into, and the kind of place you go into for a quick drink after work and end up staying for two hours. They have a solid craft beer stock, a snacks menu (hello, $2 cans of Pringles), and the best Michelada we’ve had in awhile. Downtown is always in need of more places without long lines and obnoxious shticks, and it got one in Bernadette’s.
