Went there in search of a shot of Pappy's. Found it and splurged for my birthday. $50 a shot. Gotta want it. Great looking mixed drinks and affordable pricing on them. Relaxing outdoor area in back. Inside very small, but fun.

My husband is a bourbon man and MAN did he fall in love! We stared our night with a 'flight' of bourbon paired with chocolate. The quaint atmosphere is just right and the staff sure knows how to make everyone feel at home.
