Dillinger’s Cocktails and Kitchen

Location and contact

Dillinger's Cocktails & Kitchen is a throwback to an era gone by. Situated in an old bank known as The Security Building, 1927, we craft fabulous cocktails from the pre and prohibition era and we also have a vast selection of rums in our Rum Room. We have a great happy hour from 4 until 6 except on Sundays and food from Chef Lela Cross and Chef Austin Navarre. Come escape the hustle and bustle to Dillinger's!

This review is directed more at management. We came 1/2 hr into Happy Hour. Tables dirty. We had to ask TWICE for flatware and plates. Staff (though friendly and pleasant) would swan by and leave several dirtied glasses etc. Over-priced and over-rated if your service...More

This place reminds me of prohibition time when it used to be a speakeasy. They stay true to the historic building and serve old fashioned drinks with new twists and delicious food. Highly recommend!

I must add: the food is great, too. This small venue in downtown Olympia is just the place for meeting friends for cocktails and/or dinner. Evokes the old speakeasy days but without the fear of jail. The old building is beautifully restored. I am a...More

Dillinger's is still fairly new but it looks intact from the 1920s. The drinks are creative and the food is very hip indeed. I probably wouldn't go here if I was starving but for date night it would be perfect.
