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

Want an experience?? Try the smokestack bourbon, created right in front of you! But their whole cocktail menu is fantastique! Oh, did I mention happy hour? And their pizzas very creative, artisan!

Great Happy hour and flatbread pizza specials every day. Cool themed Bar like a Speak Easy. Good mixed drink bourbon offerings.

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

Only had a couple cocktails before a play, no food, but they were delicious and a great price for happy hour. Mentioned we were going to the play, and when we left our debit card the waitress brought it over to the playhouse for us....VERY nice. Will definitely be back !More
