The Cruise Room used to be a reliable stop, and an interesting place to take out of town visitors. Great history, great atmosphere, comfortable, and good beverage. Stopped in with friends, bar was dirty, 3 booths and 3 stools were occupied. We sat for 8 minutes before we were acknowledged. I grabbed a menu and when the bartender first came up she grabbed it and said, wrong menu.
After giving us a different menu she proceeded to list off 6 drinks that were no longer available. She turned and walked away. Good thing she gave us space because we had time to consider our options.
It was at this time we noticed the fruit flies. From our spot at the bar we could see the flies climbing in and out of the bottle pourers. The bottle of Makers Mark had a clear pourer, the flies were numerous. We spun on our stools and left. We did notify the doorman who asked us how our drinks were. It appeared he sprung into action. Too late for us however.
If you have found memories of the Cruise Room, don't jeopardize them.
