From the moment you walk in it’s absolutely calming! The atmosphere is incredible. Locally source ingredients and wonderful local art. Amazing drinks. Warm and sweet staff. Would def be a regular here if I lived here. Prices are fair for area.

We stopped here while waiting for Tupelo to open. Very knowledgeable dudes who make some tasty drinks and spirits. We took bottle of Limoncello home, so what does that tell you? Worth your time!

There is no cover charge, just cost of drinks ordered & they are very reasonably priced. Can also purchase bottles of the liquers they produce.
