I spent 3 years traveling to Birmingham as I worked at a company that is based in Hoover, and this is by far my favorite spot to get drinks. Admittedly, I'm a Northerner (I believe one could smell the North on me when I was...More

A punchy craft-cocktail lounge as eccentric as they come, but it's oddity has more of a free-spirited feel to it. It's unconventional style & feel is probably why this place can pack it out on any given night. It's relaxed undercurrent is amped up with...More

I'm not sure anyone who's NOT a fan of specialty cocktails would be attracted to The Collins, which is a shame as this bar could readily make you one. The quick-take process is this: you tell the bartender what sorts of drinks or flavors or...More

We had a wonderful time sitting outside waiting for our special made cocktails. Their bartenders are very knowledgeable and willing to talk about the many versions of a drink. It's nice to get an alternative to something you usually drink at every bar!
