Karah and the rest of the bar staff were very nice and made me feel welcomed, I'm not a Bourbon drinker but with the help of Karah and Jordan I am a fan of Bullet and Bullet Rye and food was great!

We only called in here because it was attached to our hotel; so glad we did! We ended up coming back for another night of whiskey and wine! The DJs music selection was great, the bouncers were friendly with a cracking sense of humour; and...More
