Mark's Tap Room

Mark Tambascio, brewer and a national beer judge, invites customers to pull up a seat at the horseshoe-shaped bar fashioned from natural bamboo wood, and from where the television can be easily viewed or a congenial conversation initiated.  With a rotating menu of ten beers on tap and more than 50 varieties by the bottle, beer lovers can enjoy their favorite draft in a casual and friendly environment.


Regulars have branded the 13 new barstools as their own by purchasing a small, oval brass nameplate affixed to the back of a barstool.  The Tambascio family, in memory of longtime regulars, the late Gene Donahue and Karl Switzenberg, purchased two of those nameplates.  Duets and a table for six make up the remainder of the seating in the Tap Room. With Mark Tambascio's expertise and connections, My Place regularly offers brews found only in select bars, making it appealing to locals and travelers from across the country.


A new pub menu with delicious homemade German pretzels dipped in beer mustard, pulled pork sandwich or knockwurst on My Place pretzel bread, baked by Spinelli Brothers Bakery in Stamford or bite sized sliders and much more are all available during pub hours.


Wine aficionados will appreciate the weekly feature of four wines from the extensive list of wines from around the world, available by the glass or the bottle.  A full bar is available, as well.


Diners visiting on Thursday and Saturday nights can enjoy live music or steal the spotlight themselves with Open Mic on Sunday nights.
