Upon first glance, you’ll notice that Steins isn’t your typical watering hole. As you approach, you’ll notice a spacious patio area complete with glass-encased fireplace, upscale modern furniture, and a smattering of used wine barrels. The indoor space resembles an airplane hangar, with arched ceiling and long floor-space with large tables that run the length of the room and contribute to a German beer hall-esque feel. Rustic wooden booths and trim give the space a warm touch.
