Sketchy shopping center, blah service, cold beer, food is okay but it's not a home run. Â If my friend's band is playing, I'll go. Other than meeting someone who has specifically chosen Afterlife 360, I have no other driving force to come here.
PS... some of the seats are made out of old church pews', which is pretty bad ass if you ask me!
Bar food extravagenza!! It's a wannabe Biker Bar, because I get the feeling that most of the "bikers" are dentists, office workers, school teachers and the like. I love the inexpensive daily food specials and ice cold Yuenglings. Where else can you find a noon - 8 PM happy hour, but Manassas?! I'm a big fan. I visit often and destroy the NY Strip and Baked Potatoe special for $6. The staff is always friendly and you have HDTVs (with local/national sports games), a couple pool tables, a modern Jukebox and local characters for plenty of people watching to keep you entertained through your meal. It's only a 3 Stars rating from me b/c smoking is allowed in the main room with a small side non-smoking area, even I don't smoke and couldnt care less about the smoke.... give me "the action" of the main dining room and bar, any day!!Review Source:
The definition of NoVa's "biker dive bar" in Webster's. Â Classic in every sense of the word. Â It's not a movie prop, you're not on set for True Grit or something, it's a real bar in Manassas.
You got your cheap beers, your live music of bad Eagles and lost 1990s hits on tap. Â You got delicious fries that are very, very cheap. Â You also have a time machine. Â Smoke-free bars in 2011? Â Not here, my friend. Â "Classic," as Alan from the Hangover would say.
What else you got...well, when you're rolling with a bunch of brown people into the bar, you get the really, really drunk white guy with a beard who stumbles your way, and tells you that the two girls who are with you are "bee-you-tee-ful," while trying not to fall over. Â He's harmless though, he returns back to his pool table and carries on with the night.
I dare you not to leave here without some classic story that you'll ultimately end up posting on this site. Â Spread the gospel, add to the legend.
Consider yourself Tebowed...Yelp style.
I still don't know what that means.
A nice little bar outside of the usual Old Town Manassas Bar scene. Â Good prices, average selection, a little cramped inside, bad live music performers, plenty of room outside to smoke.
That's basically it. Â Although, they have a good (not incredible, but certainly not bad) steak + baked potato + veg for 5.99$ once or twice a week.
Recently I've seen a lot of bikers there... Â Might be changing to a different scene soon.
I love this place. I visit on Saturdays with the girls for drinks and apps. My drink of choice is Vodka and cranberry and they serve a generous portion for about $3.00 during happy hour. All the appetizers that I've tried are yummy.
Service is great and the atmosphere is cool. It could be described as a bit of a dive, but I like the laid back nature of the place.
Never ever again. I was SO excited to take my husband here for St Pattys after reading the reviews on Yelp. He commented on the sketchy shopping area, but I promised him that there were nothing but good reviews and that we should give it a try.
We walked in, and *immediately* walked out. We were in there literally three seconds and I exited REEKING of smoke. Who the hell lets the smokers take charge of the front dining room? I really wish we could have given this place a better try - but when there is that much smoke upon entering a restaurant...I can't even imagine eating food in there, regardless of how good it is. It really sucked we had to leave - because there was even live music playing. If heavy smoke in the atmosphere doesn't bother you - then go for sure. But I'm not a smoker and I sure hate smelling like I am when I'm not! Move the smoking to outside, none at all, or put it in the back with ventilation!
We came here based on YELP reviews. It's everything y'all say it is.
I can't drink but my wife had a margarita for under $3 during happy hour and we had the steak and potato special (salad is extra).
Service was right on the spot and the steak was done exactly as ordered. Don't know if they even have a menu but I gather they have a different $5.95 dinner special each night.
Atmosphere is quiet (for a tuesday night, maybe that's to be expected) and they have a separate dining area for non-smokers.
We'll be back.
If you don't mind a completely cheesy and cheap environment, this place is great. Â I got a steak, baked potato and garlic bread for $5.15 on a Friday night. Â My wine cost more than my steak dinner. Â I was skeptical and a tad frightened but was pleasantly surprised. Â No wonder my friends keep coming here!Review Source:
Been going to this place for a few months now. The place has a decent comfort level. There is an Arcade game or two, a few aquariums, pool table and a small stage often occupied by local small-timers. They also used to have a few couches, that was cool, but I believe they have been moved.
The dining room has plenty of small tables without being crowded. The bar is small and usually packed.
The service is always friendly and the owner seems to be there all the time. He'll do table visits and is easily approachable.
Tuesdays they offer $5 NY Strips with a potato and garlic bread. Nice quality and always cooked correctly.
Do verify the subtotal on your check, as they have a ghost charge (for modifications) that doesn't show up on your bill and can ultimately increase your check without your knowledge.
I like the laid back atmosphere and friendly service at Afterlife 360. The cheap beers don't hurt either. I think it is important to note this place is very different - furniture from an old church, pay-to-play pool and darts, and quiet folksy music - none of which seems to go together. For some, this is jarring, but I think the overall affect is a place that doesn't take itself too seriously. It's just a fun little neighborhood bar where you can have a good pint with a good friend.Review Source:
I love this place. It's a cozy neighborhood bar. The bartenders/servers always have a smile on their face, the prices are great, and it's one of the few places in this area that either aren't redneck or, alternately, harbor pretentions of "fine dining" that fall pitifully short.
As for the food? It's bar food - I mean, what can you expect? It's nothing amazing, but it's hardly unpleasant. This is just not a place you go to for the food. The ambiance is comfortable and low-key, the music is never over-powering, and there's a pay-to-play pool table, video poker machine, and darts. Since Sharpshooter's closed, this is the kind of place that's been sorely missing around here.
A small group of us stopped by tonight because of the good reviews here, and I have to say it was an enjoyable evening out! The staff was definitely friendly, and the house draft (Afterlife 360 beer!?) was actually quite good, we ordered two pitchers! Prices are fair too, don't know about the food though, but interested to try some on the next visit. Live music that wasn't overly loud, a pleasant change of pace and overall a nice relaxing atmosphere. I'd call it sort of a neighborhood joint, or a "dive bar", but what it might not have in flashy amenities, it definitely makes up with in charm and friendly and comfortable surroundings. The pool table, electronic darts, and bar game machines are nice additions for stuff to do while out for a drink. Will plan on going back for a meal soon and look forward to a returning again.Review Source:
Best bar in manassas! Â Food is awesome, owner dan is very personable and approachable. Â Service is excellent. Â Sun is a favorite of mine with a more low key crowd and the Juke box going all nite long.
no happy hour but prices are still the cheapest in town! Â Beer is cold and changes on a regular basis, great if you get bored with Â bud or miller lite draft! Â they are available in bottle though. Â Sun also has $4 race buckets of mini bud lites as well.
p.s. Â try the steak n cheese
Like every bar in Manassas, this one still has the redneck-feel to it but so far it's my favorite bar to go to. Bartenders & waitresses are very friendly, the drinks are really good & pretty cheap! The live music, which is mainly acoustic, can be a downer, so I like the TouchTunes a lot more. And there's a lot of places to sit. Don't sit near the stage or else you can't hear what your friends are saying.Review Source:
I have been going to 360 for about 6 months now and have always had a great time there without it putting a big dent on my pocket. Staff is very personable, food is better and healthier then other local bars and cheaper, drink specials are always great too! You add the live music and it's a win win combination!
Great, spacious atmosphere; friendly staff; good food; draws a large variety of people; best of all... CHEAP drinks!
The owner, Dan, is very personable; he'll set up a section for parties/groups/special occasions if need be. There's often times live music (acoustic normally), and if there's not, they have one of those TouchTunes on the wall. There's a pool table, darts, a bowling video game and two touch screen game portals, as well as numerous large flat screen TVs. There are two leather couches, several Â booths and several tables as well.
