    Even when busy, good service and well executed cocktails! Try the Fourth Regiment - rye, sweet vermouth, and 3 kinds of bitters!

    Try your favorite bourbon or whiskey two ways: neat/on the rocks and in a cocktail (Manhattan, Sazerac, or Vieux Carre)

    White whiskey and Cola hit the spot. Stone fence should work for folks who show up at a whiskey bar and don't know what to order.

    Great whiskey bar. Can get a bit cramped with a lot of people there. They make an awesome old fashioned.
