1200 items to select from all different liquors. Great place to be to get away from the traditional bar scene. Quieter, comfortable chairs/ couches. Staff know all their beverages quite well Nice reprieve to enjoy a relaxing end of day adult beverage

If you are looking for a great choice of fine selected Whiskeys or Rum's I'd highly recommend to not miss Al's Wine & Whiskey Lounge. Located in down town, Armory Square, it is the best place to go after having had a dinner in one of the various restaurants around the place.

Choice. If you're going to be a great whiskey bar then you have to have a giant wall of choices. Done. Al's wall is impressive and daunting. A great spot for after work whiskey and a a good charcuterie plate. Worth the walk to Armory Sq from Marriott

Liked this place a lot. Made a mean Sazerac, good music, local vibe (law and medical students, et al.). Music a bit too loud, making conversation difficult. Nonetheless... if i lived here, this'd be my hangout.

My wife and I had a little time to kill, so we stopped in to have a glass of wine. What a place. It was a little busy when we got there, so we ordered our drinks at the bar and waited for a couple of stools to open up at the bar so we could sit down. We generally... More

Live music! An all around great vibe! Drinks-a-plenty. Good crowd and plenty comfy couches to hang with friends or play pool in the back!

The atmosphere is great, with lots of comfy couches and nice lighting. However, the bar is almost always crowded which makes it very hard to get a drink there. It is also pretty expensive and the staff are generally fairly rude or dismissive toward customers.
