Huckleberry Pub

2327 NW Kearney St., 228-5553, 3-10 pm Monday-Friday, 9 am-10 pm Saturday-Sunday.

The little upstairs bar at Huckleberry Pub has the feeling of a mountain refuge, with a comfort-food menu that includes beet sliders and stuffed squash alongside a monstrous burger. All that cozy domesticity makes it an unlikely sports bar, but this is how the space is being used, with flat-screen TVs posted in odd locations about the bar's walls. The bar's cocktail menu is dotted with drinks flavored with huckleberry, apparently a family obsession of the pub owners, though they're a bit syrupy. The happy-hour menu is voluminous and reasonable: We'll recommend the simple comforts of a $6 early happy-hour burger and a pitcher of Oakshire or Breakside. MATTHEW KORFHAGE.
