Delightfully unexpected. We visited 3 times in 5 days. Wonderfully fun cocktails, and uniquely fun crafted pizzas. We LOVED the Grapefruit Basil Margarita and Audrey Hepburn pizza, to be precise. Charming atmosphere, friendly staff, and approachable customers that were open to conversation. It's a great...place to meet new people and enjoy great cocktails while you're at it.More

Not a bad place, just not so exciting. Cocktails,,,,average - Food......average.....could be a nice place with better cocktail ingredients. The staff was friendly. Do know this place is DARK and so so exciting ambiance in that regard.

My daughter and her fiance had their "rehearsal dinner" at the Parlor and they couldn't have picked a better place! The craft cocktails were perfect for a warm evening with family and friends and the salads and pizzas were unique and delicious. I definitely want...to return here when we visit TC next time.More

We just had cocktails at the Parlor, but they were some of the best cocktails that I had all weekend. I would highly reccomend the watermelon margarita, so good.

We almost didn’t go here. The outside did not look inviting but we decided to grab a drink here while we waited for a table nearby. We were so impressed by the atmosphere, sat at the bar and enjoyed watching the bartenders craft unique cocktails....We decided to stay for dinner. Our drinks were wonderful and the pizza was amazing! We love to find new places and this was the best find of our trip!More

Why isn’t this #1?! Every time I visit Traverse City this is my first and last stop! Always a good time! Corn hole on the deck. Craft cocktails on happy hour! Blackberry Smash, Peach Bourbon Lemonade and Champs! Not only is the food and drinks...top notch, the service is always above and beyond! Kate was our server. She did an amazing job! Thank you!More

We stopped in for happy hour and appetizers were half off and so were the drinks. The bartendar makes the best mojitos and mules. Try the egg rolls and shrimp appies. The food is exceptional. I can't say enough about this place. The decor is...industrial and everyone that worked there was really friendlyMore

I love the atmosphere of the bar. Very vintage and you can’t go wrong with live music. A couple of friends and I stopped in for a night cap after dinner. I had the fruit infused vodka. Which was fresh fruit of your choice muddled...with water and vodka, very refreshing. Would definitely stop back in a again when I come back to Traverse city. Tommy was a waiter and he was great!More

The Parlor is one of the best places in Traverse City for craft cocktails. The decor is a swing back to a time gone by with black and white televisions. velvet covered furniture, etc. The bartenders rock out the best cocktails in TC. Try the...Smokestack or the Saki Tome, or the awesome margaritas.More

My friend and I decided to try out he cocktail menu here. We weren't able to have any food because the kitchen was already closed at 9ish. We probably waited about 40 minutes to get someone to take our order and an hour to get...drink that was a bit too strong. I decided to give it a pass because at the the time it was packed. But when I wanted to order different one when majority of people left, it still took about 45 minutes for one drink and I had to send it back because it was way too strong. The saving grace f the night was that it was a Monday where they had half off drinks. I may give it a another try in the future, but it will only be on a Monday.More
