Nice long happy hours!

I've been a few times to this little shotgun bar on N. Mississippi and I like it. Food is pretty good and cocktails done well. Last night, the special cocktail was Rum, Lime, Falernum & Chocolate Bitters, pretty tasty.

We also tried the charcuterie plate, stuffed anaheim pepper, and a few other things. Marinated Chicken and/or Beef skewers seem like a good choice for the next visit; and, of course, another pepper! I believe I had the Cheese plate on my first visit and it was excellent, too.

Staff very friendly and personable.

Highly Recommended.

Thanks for the write-up John! I've been curious about this place for awhile but for whatever reason haven't made it in there.

One question - what is the atmosphere like?

I stopped by there for a couple drinks a few weeks back. Nice place friendly people.
Drinks were nice- a little on the sweeter side than I usually go for but you can tell they're made with care.
As far as atmosphere- very casual, light when the sun is up and then quite dark later.
In a place as small as this though the atmosphere really does change with the clientelle so I wouldn't try to pin it down as loud/quiet...
Methinks I am like a man, who having struck on many shoals, and having narrowly escap'd shipwreck in passing a small frith, has yet the temerity to put out to sea in the same leaky weather-beaten vessel, and even carries his ambition so far as to think of compassing the globe under these disadvantageous circumstances-Hume
