    Check out the bar downstairs

    “Rickhouse” references buildings that store aging bourbon. In keeping, the place is constructed from salvaged wood that has served as a barrel stave in Kentucky. Read more

    Great Old Fashioned! Try with Noah's Mill or Rowans Creek. If you get the opportunity check out downstairs, the staff was awesome.

    Very good classics - old fashioned is very good. Sazerac is good but not awesome

    There's a chill downstairs area here

  • Barton S.

    Love the drinks, really love the cabin interior, don't love the downtown crowd as much.

    Nice change from your typical quiet, stuffy craft cocktail bar. Energetic, fun bartenders and rock music pumped through the speakers.

    They have Laphraoig Quarter Cask here! 🙏 If you're not in a whiskey state of mind, La Bonne Vie is gin-based and delicious.

    Cocktail heaven, a great place to chill and grab a drink! I recommend a cocktail called Forever Young. I want to try the punch bowl next time in SF. Loved the character and ambiance.

    1920's theme with a speak easy vibe. Be prepared for strong drinks and a hidden atmosphere.

    The "Bone Apart" is an absolutely fantastic cocktail made with a very peaty Scotch whisky. Do it.

    Local beer.

  • Bourbon🍸Explorer

    Order the Laphroaig Project. It's not on the menu but it's 1 of the most amazing cocktails you'll ever have if you're a whisk(e)y cocktail fan. Smokey,fruity w/just the right amount of sweet.

    Bourbon🍸Explorer · August 27, 2014

    Russell Davis' spot (of Bar Rescue fame). Grab a drink, head to the back and up the stairs for a more quiet experience. Gets packed and a bit sloppy on weekends.

    Michael Dempsey · August 1, 2014
  • Christian E.

    Normally this place is cool, but tonight I came with 10 colleagues and the bartender was having a bad day and was a dick. Honestly, if you are having a good day just stay at home.
