    Screams class. Want to get away from the 20 something's drinking their faces off down the street? Drop into Al's for a cool lounge-y vibe with a selection of drinks to die for. Relax, mingle here.

    Although this is a bar/lounge, they have the BEST food. Serving cheese plates, there is a wide variety of international cheeses that you can choose from that will open up your classy side.

    Hard to beat the selection of fine wines, beers, and spirits that they have at Al's. The ambiance, comfy seating, and excellent food complete the package. Great place to gather with friends.

    If you are craving a wide array of liquors or wine, Al's might have one of the best and broadest assortments of high-end booze in the region.

    Outdoor seating in the summer, indoor leather couches year round complete with jenga, card games, a well-loved pool table and talented bartenders.

    Amazing whiskey & bourbon bar. Always a fun time. Unfortunately I'm dating myself BC I remember it as awful al's cigar bar and can't believe there's no more cigars! In any case the go to bar downtown

    Great fresh drinks! Great music, atmosphere, and staff. The bar can get crowded on weekend ready to squeeze through for the bathroom!

    Great ambience. Drinks are way overpriced. Food is good. nachos are heavenly. Although I dunno why anyone would look to eat at a pub. Oh well..

    Whiskey. Spirits of any kind. And surprisingly, a good tap beer menu. Order the best Cuban sandwich you've ever had.
