Foursquare Tips

  • The Gun Metal Blue drink steals the spotlight. Don't be fooled by the color. The drink, made with Mezcal Vida and blue Curaao, is unexpectedly smoky, with hints of peach balanced by cinnamon syrup.
  • On the first visit, it felt like I'd been coming here for years. Great atmosphere, great food and drinks. And the best example of southern hospitality anywhere!
  • Flagg Day, popcorn, and darts in the back.
  • Simple but awesome food.
  • Great hidden gem and whiskey selection is so on point.
  • You can't go wrong with any of the cocktails, but mezcal lovers will definitely want a Gun Metal Blue.
  • Unique, welcome addition to the neighborhood. Lively but cozy. Great beer selection and awesome cocktails. Slow service.
  • At Danny Meyer's first stand-alone bar the drinks are the stars. But, menu items like beef jerky, boiled-peanut hummus and jalapeo corn bread play delicious supporting roles.
  • Worth the trek out to 11th ave, if you can convince a group to meet you there during happy hour. Try and grab one of the game tables in the back, a deck or cards or dominoes and don't move.
  • Drinks are decent but a little touristy. If for some reason you find yourself over here, a fine option, but don't go out of your way.
  • Brown liquors.
  • Danny Meyers new place. Great staff, very friendly, delicious cocktails. Delicious food but TINY TINY portions. $100 a person but left starving. Opening for lunch soon
  • Great sazerac
  • Friends and family night was awesome! Saying we got obsessed with the shrimp toast is an understatement. But really, it's amazing food @ a bar. The whole team @ USHG & Porchlight are amazing.
  • Porchlight offers happy hour Monday to Friday 4 to 7 PM. Drink options include flasks of punch for $5, and $9 for dark and light-spirited cocktails. You can also get your choice of beer and a bite.
  • Bartenders ain't trying to be nice even a bit. Doing a decent job with a drinks but an attitude...
  • The Revolver is my go-to cocktail. The biscuits and spicy chicken are both steller.
  • The Gun Metal Blue is not girly. At all. Actually, it's quite good.
  • A bit out of the way but good bar service and cocktails - decent beer selection
