Foursquare Tips

  • Cashew nuts with rosemary are a great nar snack that pair well with the whiskey cocktails here.
  • Love the ingredients they put in the Barren Hill cocktail: rye, sweet vermouth, Laphroaig, pistachio syrup, and saffron tincture.
  • Good old fashioned bourbon/whiskey bar with a woody atmosphere and charming looks with a wide selection of bottles if you sit at the counter. A good retreat whether if you're alone or with a group.
  • An unpretentious, lovely little spot with great whiskey. Great to nook away here for a nightcap.
  • Large variety of whiskeys and very good service.
  • Amazing happy hour with $6 old fashioned and fruit punch of the day!
  • Small selection of beers, but great service and ambience.
  • Great cocktails, great atmosphere.

  • They serve Miller High Life in a champagne flute.
  • Cool place for a cocktail. Low key and good music.
  • Neat bar themed after the famed Civil War general, with antique photos and silver lithographs on the walls. Cool cocktails, including a "Gin & Pine" with a not-often-seen pine liqueur. Refreshing!
  • Mellow late on a Thursday night. Easygoing bartenders. Decent bourbon selection.
  • Great place, cool cocktails! Many of the drinks were foreign to me however the bartender was great in explaining what everything was. We went at 7p on a Saturday and were able to get a great table!
  • Nice relaxing bar. Solid bartenders.
  • Delighted they still had wait staff working late in the evening so there was some order and not a chaotic mash up at the bar.
