Went here with some friends but found out really quickly that it is not our type of place. It's way to loud and crowded with young college students and the drinks while good are in my opinion over priced. The decor is funky and they...More

Collins Bar was awesome. The service was great! The bartenders are knowledgeable, creative and best of all passionate about making the best drinks. Thank you Lauren, Wild Bill, and &@!? Cole! Looking forward to the next one.

Okay, you tell them what you like and they make a drink based on that for you. But, I was no fun, because what I wanted was a dirty martini with Absolute! They also had some bar snacks and the bar was packed!

My daughter (grad from University of Alabama) heard I had a business trip to Birmingham and insisted I visit this unique, creative bar. It was everything she says and more! Don't order something you already know. Be adventurous and order via adjectives. The bartenders are...More

What would you like to drink? They have it and the know their liquor. A must when your looking for cool atmosphere and a few really well made cocktails.

Not every bar serves good drinks, and even fewer have good service. The Collins bar manages to do both well. This is a bar to go to socialize and not listen to blaring music that prohibits conversation. This is a bar where if you liked...More
