    Waitstaff pretty rude when asked for a gin cocktail recommendation. Just said look at the menu (which is very complex and extensive)…one of the drinks tasted like mustard so I sent it back and they still charged me for it…

    Great spot. Drinks are perfect and real creations. They’ve got the classics by generation but also some of their own recipes. Won’t disappoint and the vibes are perfect for a date or small group to enjoy a drink before or after dinner.

    This is the quintessential craft cocktail bar. Bartenders are making classic drinks under a large menu of concoctions, and there are QR codes to show more drinks. My group ordered a mix of cocktails from a "Naked and Famous" to a "Zombie" complete with alcohol flame billowing out of a skull, and all of the drinks were great. The vibe felt busy but relaxed for a Friday night at 10 pm. This place may become the primary reason that I visit downtown Austin in the future.

    As usual the drinks were outstanding!!! We thought the charcuterie board for $40 was quite minimal… but also the other members in my party did not order anything else for sharing. Our waitress seemed nice but her level of service did not equal the quality of the establishment. She always seemed very bothered every time we would call her over to order another drink- and we had to wave her over ALMOST every time. Some of the times when we would try and wave at her it seemed she was completely ignoring us. She seemed to spend a lot of time behind a curtain near the end of the bar 🤷‍♀️. Would that sad we do love the Roosevelt room!! Back in the day, Reservations were not I must.

    Delicious, well-balanced, inventive drinks, as well as perfect versions of the classics. Pretty good service time considering what goes into to making these cocktails, but the food menu was very small apps only, and the staff was backed up. Not a lot of room and we had to squish into our table. When 2 additional friends tried to join us, they were turned away at the door.

    This bar has an extensive array of cocktails with a full description of the ingredients along with the backstory on when these cocktails came on the scene. The cocktails are attentively well made with the mixologists observed discarding any glasses with spots. The food choices are decent but limited. We enjoy sitting at the bar to watch the cocktail making. Nonetheless the overall ambiance is engaging.
