Bar review: Rookie's Bar & Grill, Larnaca.
The latest place to try its luck in Larnaca's ever-competitive bar scene combines the often successful team of beer, food and sports.
Rookie's is an American-style sports bar and grill in a cozy setting near downtown Larnaca which offers a laid back atmosphere with a vast array of good beer and decent food, as well as sports and music.
As you would expect from an establishment which aims to be the go-to spot for live sporting events, the interior walls are dotted with HD television screens which means you will not miss a moment of the action wherever you are seated, whether you like it or not.
Rookie's pride is its vast selection of beers which is very impressive for a chilled out sports bar. For most bars with beers from around the world, the beer itself is the main attraction. Here, there are the likes of Duvel, Chimay, Tripel Karmeliet, Maredsous and many more standout beers, as well as the refreshing Kopparberg, a fruity cider from Sweden which comes in various flavours.
While not marketing itself as a restaurant as such, Rookie's still offers a good variety of bar food. The fact that it looks to be modeled around a classic American sports bar is reflected by the menu, apart from the few salads on offer -- there are things like chicken wings, homemade burgers, souvlaki, pork chops, nachos and fries as well as some tempting desserts.
There is plenty of outdoor seating which tends to be full most lunchtimes on weekends, that is until the big sports games kick off mid afternoon. The inside seating area take a U-shape around the large bar in the centre of the establishment which makes service a lot easier to get.
Do not expect anything lavish when it comes to comfort. The tables and chairs merely serve the purpose of having a vantage point of the event on TV. Ultimately, the atmosphere is a matter of taste, it might not be ideal for those who want a chill and comfortable setting but ideal for beer and sports lovers.
