Around the back, give the password (almost), down the steps (watch your head), dim lighting, tiny bar-what fun
We had a lovely after dinner experience. Our servers listened and came up with suggestions for us to try, not just "what'll ya have?". It's small and dimly lit but that's sort of the point. We loved it and would definitely go again. The prices are not cheap but these are cocktails prepared with care and attention to detail, which comes out in the taste.

We have been down there several times and each time is a unique experience as the crowd for the evening sets the tone for the ambiance and experience. Unique hand crafted cocktails and located just downstairs from The Rieger Hotel Restaurant so you can combine the two for a marvelous evening and a great place to entertain out of town guests!

Very dark speakeasy with Blackdoor entrance you’d never expect to lead to this cool place. Only disappointments- pricey bill and Al Capone didn’t show up. Drinks were delicious but small at average price of about $13 I guess. The Jack Frost and the Ward & Precinct were very good. The figs in the Manhattan were potent! Knowledgeable server. Fun (but expensive) place to go!!

Loved the vibe, super dark -- good for pre or post dinner -- a definite must when in KC. Can't wait to go back.

Not going to lie, I was a little nervous the first time I came here and was walking down that back ally and ringing a buzzer door. I love the candle lit atmosphere and the drinks are to die for. They are strong and delicious drinks worth every penny!
