Yes, this is a unique place with a lot of bourbon on the menu. I found the pours long, but over priced as compared to other area establishments on the Urban Bourbon Trail.

After a disappointing visit to the bar at Louisville Slugger Stadium, we had a great experience at this "punk rock "dive bar. Don't expect wine, they only offer one white and one red. Their bourbon selection is extensive as is their draft beers. They have...More
