    Outstanding whiskey selection. The vibe is very college on a weekend night though, so be prepared for a lot of kids still learning how to drink in public.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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

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

    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..

    Whisky ginger. Whatever ginger ale they use is fantastic. Try poring it on your face for extra flavor.
