“Best. Old Fashioned. Ever.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2012

My husband and I "Hotwired" a night at the 21C Museum Hotel, and saw a chalk sign in front of this establishment: "Have you ever had a properly made Old Fashioned?". As two bourbon drinkers, we were intrigued. The place was like a step back in time. The decor was dark leather, dark wood, and a bar that looked like it was from the 20's. Big band music played in the background - loud enough to enjoy, easy to still carry on a soft conversation. Bartender was informative and had a great personality. Recommended the Four Roses Small Batch - good choice! Excellent bourbon list (as well as wines). Menu was limited and a bit pricey, but the cheese tray was delicious. Will definitely visit again when we're in the area!
