Bottoms Up Gastropub and Tap House in Coral Springs – The South Florida Sage

In November 2017, Bottoms Up Gastropub and Tap House made its debut in the heart of Coral Springs. The gastropub features a variety of speciality craft brews and a menu influenced by Cuban-American and Southern comfort cuisine. The name and concept are inspired by their unique tap system, where special glasses fill the from the bottom up with no foam or spills – a perfect pour every time!

Draft Beer

No gastropub is complete without an excellent selection of craft brews. From Lagers and IPAs to Saisons and Porters – guests can sit back, relax, and sip on local brews from several South Florida favorites including Wynwood Brewing Company, Funky Buddha, Due South and Coppertail; including house drafts like the Bottom’s Up House IPA and Amber Ale.

Sliders at Bottoms Up Gastropub Coconut Creek
Brisket Sliders

The Bourbon Bleu Cheese Brisket sliders were tasty! You’ll find these under the starters section of the menu alongside items such as the Cuban Empanadas and Bacon Beer Cheese Dip. Never thought I would be one to say this since I love a good sauce but these had a bit too much of it. The ratio was off.

These fries were coated to perfection! Once again no skimping on flavor here. Finger licking good.

Grilled Cheese Bottoms Up Gastropub Coconut Creek
Brie Grilled Cheese

Behold, the signature grilled cheese with manchego, brie, apricot jam, applewood smoked bacon, balsamic vinaigrette. An eclectic grilled cheese for sure. Very good flavors but unfortunately my bread was burnt on the bottom.

Pesto Chicken Pasta

The description reads: Lightly fried parmesan crusted chicken breast stuffed with ricotta and broccoli served over a bed of creamy pesto spaghetti. Well, I just went to Cinque Terre, Italy which is the birth place of pesto and it’s safe to say that this was not pesto. It was more like flakes of dried herbs such as parsley. The staff mentioned that they recently changed the recipe.. hard to imagine what it was like before they changed it.. yikes. But then again, maybe it’s our bad for ordering pasta outside of an Italian restaurant.

Skillet Peanut Butter S’mores Dip

This is a good dessert to order for large parties!

Despite a few dislikes, I would return for some brews and to try a few other menu items. I heard they have a creamsicle cheesecake, that sounds like something I would like! The brunch spread sounds promising, too.

Bottom’s Up Sunday brunch is offered 11AM – 3PM and offerings include Berry Stuffed French Toast, Pork Belly Eggs Benedict, and Drunken Chicken and Waffle Sandwich. Creative brunch cocktails include Endless Mimosas with choice of orange, blood orange or watermelon juice; and a Honey Jalapeno Bloody Mary made with Nobo Brewing Company’s Honey Jalapeno Blonde Ale.

The open and airy space reflects earth tones of rich browns along with wood and copper accents at the spacious bar. Contemporary, industrial greys complete the interior, accompanied by flat-screen TVs. Guests can enjoy Happy Hour Monday through Friday from 4PM 6PM. Specials include $1.50 off draft beer and house wine and 20% off all appetizers.

Disclosure: I received a complimentary tasting at Bottoms Up. All opinions are my own.
