Withing a few minutes of entering the door, three different servers asked if they could help us with a cocktail. Fast, efficient and friendly. I normally drink my bourbon neat, but had them make me a cocktail, which was quite good and not sweet. My...More

What a great find in Bham! The bartenders were way cute dressed in theme. The vibe was chill. We came here while waiting for a table at El Barrio. We asked for a drink menu and we were told...just tell us what you like and...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
