Walking distance to Avondale or Fancy's on 5th. This is a great stop to enjoy a drink and relax. The decorations and atmosphere are very nice.

Great original menu with a very comfortable atmosphere. Burgers are great...bar originals including a bourbon cocktail infused with bacon simple syrup. Will be back again next time in BHAM.

Outdoor area is nice. Excellent place to have a drink or three and enjoy delicious food from the built in Airstream like trailer that serves as a kitchen. Service in the inside bar is a bit slow as they are usually understaffed.
