Love this cool bar! Low key and fabulous selection of libations! Bartenders were super nice even though they we swamped. Great jute box and pinball!

Stopped by as part of the Urban Bourbon Trail tour. The bar is as advertised, lots and lots of Bourbon! It was a eclectic crowd and a lot of fun. It was a little hard to talk due to the volume of the music, but...More
