Not far up the street from D Dogs and Heroes. Going for sort of a 1920s, perhaps even speakeasy, vibe. Nice decor and well done interior. You have to ask for a beer list since they don’t have anything at the bar that shows what’s on tap. The beer list is kind of disappointing...I guess it is focused on local beers (Hangar 24, Ritual, Packinghouse, etc.), but just their basic, biggest selling products. You’d be better off ordering a cocktail. The biggest complaint I had here was the service. Granted, I was wearing shorts and a t-shirt, but on a 90+ degree Saturday, I don’t think that’s uncalled for. But I had to practically cause a scene to get the bartender to acknowledge me. Don’t know if I’d really care to come back.

Visited September 2013.

I stopped in with the roomate shortly after I moved to Riverside. I had heard about this place being a good whiskey bar so we figured we’d give it a shot for lunch one Sunday afternoon. It’s right in the downtown area so you have plenty of parking and a nice outdoor mall type of area with minimal bums. Inside is split into two rooms. The main room with the bar has a few tables but not a lot. The other room, which was closed off at the time is reserved for events or is just used for overflow. They do the whole prohibition theme with the names of the drinks, the decoration, and the happy hour "password" that you have to tell them to get your cheaper drinks.

Sunday is happy hour all day so food was dirt cheap. $4 for most items, which doesn’t sound like a good deal but the portions were pretty big (for the price). I ordered two things assuming that would make a meal but I assumed wrong and ended up with way too much food. I got the bleu cheese fries and a pork belly flat bread. They were both pretty good. The beer list sadly is kind of mediocre. It’s still better than everything else in the area except of course Salted Pig and Killarney’s. They’re still young though so they might learn a bit about beer and get some more interesting stuff on tap. I’ll go back soon and see if I can’t convince them to drop some of the locals that aren’t very good and get something better.

Check the website for pricing if you won’t be there during happy hour as it won’t be as good as when I was there on a Sunday. Service was attentive and the beer guy is friendly, if not knowledgeable.
