Joined our friends after work for drinks, appetizers, dinner, and desserts. Large selection of beers and bourbons. Excellent apps and choice of entrees. We had mussels and chicken bites apps. I have salmon entree. All delicious and well served. Great experience.

I was expecting much higher prices based on the reviews. My wife and I each had a drink for a total of $16. I highly recommend this place, bobby the bartender was very chatty and kept it interesting. The atmosphere was a small old fashioned bar feel, no special attire required.

The bar tender was friendly and down to earth. Ambiance was cool and eclectic. Enjoyable evening. Poor was generous.

Bartenders here have too much pride in their collection, so much pride that they apparently aren't interested in selling it. Spotted a bottle I've been looking for and asked for a price. Was told the bottle wasn't open and wouldn't be, but assured me it was great because he had it at another bar. Asked about another bottle and was... More

Looking for a great bourbon bar in Lexington and found this place advertising a ridiculous number of bourbons. Well, yes, there are a huge number of bourbons here. Why do they have so much bourbon on hand? Because they sell it for such ridiculous prices that no one buys it. Example: We ate dinner at Enoteca and I got a... More

Went in to try a few of the local bourbons and the bartender couldn't have been more helpful. Their selection is impressive to say the least and I appreciated the good suggestions from the staff. Nice outdoor seating area as well.

I went here on Saturday after a few drinks. You don't get served on a Saturday night in a timely fashion if you're not a young white guy. I watched four or five guys walk up and get served while I waited for around 15 minutes. When I finally got "served" I ordered Makers 46 on the rocks and didn't... More

Not only that but there's history. And a lovely bar. Live music some nights, and a great location. The bartender is awesome.

Showed up at 6:30 pm with my wife after attending friends' anniversary reception and found it didn't open until 7 pm. We had a nice Happy Hour beverage at Centro next door. Before 7:00, we watched one employee clean windows and another getting the inside ready to open. After 7:00, watched a handful of people try front door, finding it... More

We're from PA and really wanted the "bourbon bar" experience...and we got it here! It was a Tuesday night and the bar wasn't too busy, so we were given the chance to really talk bourbon (and a million other things) with Lenny. Lenny knows his stuff and is obviously a HUGE attribute to a bar like that. My husband and... More
