Tips

  • The cocktails are amazing and the options come out on tarot cards! Love this place.
  • Helmed by Drawing Room alumna Liz Pearce, this spot has an esoteric and vintage interior, and there are tarot-inspired cocktails and eclectic performances.
  • The friendly staff, oddball performers and intimate vibe make this place approachable and impressive. Expertly crafted cocktails and a rotating menu will lure you to return again and again.
  • Enter the Green Door Tavern, walk through the bar, head down the stairs in the back, and youll come to a waiting room. Capacity is 37, so you may have to wait a bit.
  • Drinks were awesome, but the cabaret was a bit of a disappointment. The acts were good, but not enough shows left a lot of time just sitting there.
  • Great selection of beer and atmosphere. Shows are one short act but well worth the cover.
  • A slightly hidden treasure found at the basement of another bar. Great cocktail list w/the menu shared by Tarot Cards. If hungry the cheese curds are no joke.
  • A very unique place. You have to go through a completely different bar & down to the basement to reach The Drifter. Loved the cocktails and the tarot card menus. The shows were interesting, too!
  • Cocktail choices are printed on decks of vintage tarot cards, many of which cycle in and out of the deck daily. Available by request when it's not on the menu is the Essential Monsters
  • Its dark and its eerie inside, & thats what the owner was going for. The big attraction to this bar is the dark, almost gothic, entertainment which is curated to match the image of the bar.
  • Good drinks, but expensive. Disappointing show, way too quick given the wait.
  • Speakeasy with vintage ambiance. Interesting tarot cards cocktail menu and entertaining burlesque shows. Good night out.
  • Cocktail list is a stack of tarot cards. Great drinks, snacks and burlesque shows
  • The drink menu, which is shown on custom made tarot cards.
  • Just pick something with your favorite base spirit; it's going to be good.
  • Cocktails, weird performances and genuine speakeasy history.
  • A hidden speakeasy that can be missed so keep your eyes open. It's a good time inside.
  • Super low key. Great drinks and great atmosphere.
  • Dingo Stole My Baby: Tequila, banana liqueur, aloe vera liqueur, jalapeno soda, fresh citrus ($12). Jalapeno soda? Okay! This sipper was totally manageable with only a hint of heat from the soda.
  • Try the Dingo Stole My Baby, with tequila, banana liqueur, aloe vera liqueura, jalapeo soda, and fresh citrus. It's a manageable sipper with only a hint of heat.
