Located through an unmarked street door, upstairs and down a hallway you come to a sliding barn door. Knocking gets you in and the cool vibe is immediate. Intimate, candlelit, small cozy atmosphere serving seriously strong craft cocktails. Fun experience for our first speakeasy -...More

We popped in on a Sunday evening for some cheeky cocktails. This bar is a gem - fantastic bar with great drinks and a really inviting and friendly team. This hidden speakeasy is definitely one to visit.

I admit I do not get this place. They do what they do very well I guess -- it’s just not a good fit for me. I am not giving them a bad review but informing you of what to expect. Expect to drink cocktails...More

Left the teens in the hotel for the night. The Wife and I headed out to explore a different side of the capitol. Harold Black had a great atmosphere, excellent drinks, Emily looked after us all extremely well. Highly Recommended.
