Enjoyed this cozy Bourbon bar. Over 500 bourbons on hand, and 600 total labels of spirits. Bartenders were very engaging and friendly. Provided information on Bourbons and the industry. Lots of custom drinks, and made right in front of you. Will return!

Great experience tasting a number of bourbons on the patio behind the bar. Atmosphere was great. Locals provided some recommendations, as well. Molly Wellmann does it right.

Almost a museum of bourbon and rye bottles. They have what you're looking for if you have the $$$. Common stuff runs around $9-12 a 2 oz pour, better stuff that's not really rare runs around $15-18 a pour, semi-rare stuff $22-$40, rare stuff up...More
