I was greeted by loud rock music (not blaring), which was playing from a crisp, high-quality sound system. They have an in-wall touch-screen monitor that allows you to select and buy from hundreds of songs from any music genre. I also noticed the several high-definition plasma televisions on every wall in the bar, which were showing hockey, basketball and baseball.
For entertainment on various nights, the Office has live bands, beer pong and other promotional events, such as the Ultimate Fighter Championship on pay-per-view.
I was greeted by the server who immediately asked what I would like to drink. I ordered a Coke, but the Office has more than 40 domestic and imported beers to choose from, including Guinness Extra Stout, Chimay Tripel and Blue Moon Belgian White. Prices range from $3.50 to $5 for domestic, $4.50 to $17 for imports and $8 for wine.
There is seating at the bar, or at tables that line the wall opposite the bar. There is also a lounge in the back where you can sit in their comfortable couches.
The menu is very short, but does offer a few surprises, such as the meatless Portabello mushroom burger, penne pasta with mushroom and sauted chicken, and horseradish crusted salmon with sauted spinach. They also offer sauted sweet plantains, but I was told they are a seasonal item, and they did not have them at that time.
My friends and I started off with hot wings ($7), which had a nice spicy kick without being overbearing, and were not too vinegary, as some hot wings can be.
