Atmosphere was amazing! Drinks are great but you get cheated by the half glass block of ice for a 10 dollar custom drink. The waitress is a day late and a dollar short when it comes to service . If you need a drink you...More

Beautiful bar, a little hard to find if you are just walking by. The bartenders treat each drink as if were a dish of food at a great restaurant, you see their effort on each drink. Great cocktails and awesome place for a date night...More

Visited based on the recommendation of our waitress at a different bar. Very cool decor and vibe! Good craft cocktails made by super nice bartenders. Got busy on the weekend, but very laid back on Wednesday and Thursday night when we visited.

The Doggery was a TripAdvisor suggestion, so we tried it. We were a little frustrated at first because we couldn't find it. The only signage is a glass door. It's like a speak easy and everything is underground. No food is served, just drinks. There...More

This is a little speakeasy pub in downtown Rochester. We went for a drink and were so happy with the creative menu of drink options. There is no food available, but guests can order from the old phone booth to have pizza delivered. This is...More
