Location and contact

A modern industrial nod to Prohibition history. The back alley garage where someone today would sneak a bourbon, beer or gourmet comfort food meal. First come, first served. No reservations.

Phenomenal bourbon selection and bartender was knowledgeable and helpful selecting my flight. Garlic Parmesan fries may be best we’ve ever had. Excellent BLT and fried chicken sandwich.
