Village Voice's Description

Commonwealth is far from disheveled, but itas no yupster lounge. For six bucks apiece you can get 20 ounces of Guinness and a generous cup of delicious Kentucky beer cheese with crackers. Good bar food thatas not atapasa or inspired by sports: reason enough to deem the place a true original.
