A friend of mine suggested we give this place a try since it's emphasis seems to be on beer. I'd never heard of it.
When I entered I was pleasantly surprised to see 24 taps all featuring craft beer, no Bud, Miller or Coors at this place! in addition they had an extensive bottle selection full of rare, domestic and imported beers.
Tony, the owner, was very cool and great to talk to, Jennifer who was working behind the bar was charming, lovely and really knew her beer.
We also tried their flatbread and watermelon and cucumber salad which were both fantastic. Look for this place to gain as much popularity as Beachwood BBQ, Haven and Hollingsheads.

Heard alot about this place and I had some down time to check it out so I stopped in for a brew.
Girl behind the bar was very friendly. I didn't ask her alot of questions about their beer but she did inform me of them having a Stone beer dinner coming up.
About 16 or so taps with about 40 more bottles. I chose a Lost Abbey brew. They had Gulden Draak, a couple Craftsmen, and a brew from the Bruery on tap that I can remember. Bottles looked good but definately pricey.
Very cool atmosphere. Since I live 5 minutes away I will definately be back more often.

Craft beer comes to Whittier.
Staring down 6740 from the opposite side of Greenleaf, The Bottle Room challenges the local beer scene with 24 taps of craft beer standards (no domestic macros to speak of). On my visit, notable tap brews included Lost Abbey Devotion, Green Flash IPA, Delirium Tremens, Victory Pils, Unibroue Maudite, Maredous 10 and Speakeasy Double Daddy. The bottle list hasn't quite caught up to the promise of the bar's name; nothing jaw dropping here (although in all fairness this review is being written a mere week after opening).
Want to go to a beer bar but the spouse isn't in to beer? The Bottle Room is much a wine bar as it is a beer bar.
Food is a little bit better than good. I certainly didn't feel like I needed to order a meal; there are plenty of small tapas better-than-pub-grub items to accompany your beer. The meals are well thought out and delicious.
Service is excellent.
My only complaint was that everything is a bit pricey. Beer pours are $6-8 for an American pint or small chalice.
