Best beer selection in the city, the bartenders have all been very knowledgeable about each beer. Have been several times but they really could improve on the food...sometimes it's hot dogs and other times we've had sausage platters and another time there was no food, not even pretzels or peanuts. We had to order some hummus from the place next door.
Great spot. Relaxed environment with the best selection by far in town. Bartenders are good people and they often have an awesome food setup at night. Nothing else like this in town
Chillest bartenders. Ask them recommend a new beer for you based on what you know you like. You will not be disappointed with the selection.
I love this place. The atmosphere and lighting is perfect. The music isn't so loud you have to yell to talk. Not too bright but not too dark. Garrett knows his beer and he is our favorite! They always have plenty to choose from and I'm never disappointed with the selection.
Best beer selection in Baton Rouge. My go-to spot for stuff I won't see anywhere else.

Cool Mid-City bar with good music as well as solid cocktail menu and beer selection. There's an outdoor patio. Happy hour is usually relaxed, but gets lively at night.
Great staff, good rum selection. Music selection is mostly indie, which I like. Hipster type vibe here. Converted garage.
Faahhhkkkk I love this place. Even when it's packed on the weekend I don't have to wait long for a drink. They host fun events occasionally and always have great music playing (but not too loud like those other bars.)
Awesome atmosphere right around the corner from my house beautiful bar tenders luved it I'll be back
I'm a regular at this bar. It's a great pregame spot, not too far from downtown. Or if you're just looking to meet a few friends for a laid back night, it's perfect. Ping pong and darts outside, shuffleboard inside and plenty of seating. It's a very hipster-ish atmosphere but mostly everyone is friendly and easy to get along with.

Awesome experience in a speakeasy-type setting all within a Baton Rouge strip mall. Excellent service from bartenders who are pure professionals of the industry and are knowledgeable about every spirit and cocktail. I am only in Baton Rouge for a couple days on business but I hope to come back to this bar when/if I am back in the area. Definitely one of the better cocktail bar experiences I've had.
I've been wanting to check out this place since I saw it was opening, and I was not disappointed! Not only is the interior of the bar absolutely amazing and so interesting but the drinks are really good and the bartenders were knowledgeable and friendly! The featured drinks are from another era but made so well that even a person like myself who normally doesn't drink hard liquor was able to enjoy them thoroughly. I ordered a Sidecar, Sazerac, and a Tchoupitoulas Gutter, and my boyfriend enjoyed sipping on a delicious Manhattan. I can't wait to bring a few more friends to this spot again soon.
Great bar!! Hands down best cocktails in town. The bar's unique atmosphere is great and they have a phenomenal and very knowledgeable and friendly staff.
Really tasty, well balanced drinks. Comfortable vibe. Can actually speak to my neighbor! Knowledgeable bartenders. All around well done.
The bartenders here know their stuff, and the owner is passionate about his business. It's a great place to linger over drinks and try something new.

Great service, beautiful historical building. Delicious food that you can tell great care was taken to prepare. Best mimosas I've had too. Can't wait to visit again.
This place ended up being a pleasant surprise. My fiancé and I were wanting a light meal before we headed back to our hotel for the night around 9pm, and while doing a Google search came across this place. We ended up ordering the Gumbo and the Soup of the Day, and it was absolutely fantastic, with a generous portion size. I would highly recommend if you are in the area.
The service and food was great. I had the pot roast with potatoes and green beans. Delicious. Highly recommended.
I'm still dreaming about the french toast and vodka freeze and it's been three weeks!! Great atmosphere. Classy. Nice prices. Great food!
I sat at the bar for a quick lunch, I had great service from the bar tender. The spinach artichoke dip was great, but the show stopper was the home made chips. I also had some sort of summer salad with strawberries and blueberries that was one of the best I've ever had.

Gf and I went for lunch today. Non-descript outside doesn't prepare one for the beautiful interior. Hip, modern feel, with tables and high tops up front, and a smaller more intimate room adjoining the open kitchen. We were greeted warmly and seated promptly, in fact, the interaction with the manager (owner) continued during the meal and after, a very nice touch. The menu made our choice difficult. So many interesting choices, definitely not burger and fry spot. After some deliberation, the Business Lunch was both our choices. It's quite a deal-choice of soup, salad and a half of any of their list of sandwiches all for $12. Soups were creative, salads super fresh and unique and both sandwiches we had, chicken salad and arepa (pulled pork on corn cakes), were delicious. This place can compete with any of the recent spate of electric tapas/small plate spots we've been to. Service was prompt without being overboard and the menu begs for return trips. Highly recommended!
One of the best restaurants in Baton Rouge. Every single thing is delicious, each time we have gone. The staff has been consistently super nice and super helpful too.
There was a bug in our water and fruit flies everywhere. The servers and management were very unapologetic about it all. Really sad. We left half of our chips uneaten because we were disgusted. When we asked to move they had the audacity to bring back the same half eaten plate and ask if we wanted it still...not even offering a new one. At this point we had already decided what we wanted to eat but were so disgusted by the insects our appetite was gone and we were upset. The management still made us pay for our disgusting food and at the end did not apologize for the horrible experience. BIG mistake for them, us being Hispanic and having made Hispanic friendships here in downtown (this place was even walking distance for us) would have been coming here regularly. Never again unless this situation is addressed and fixed in terms of how horribly we were treated here. Good potential but big disappointment.
Great bar specialty cocktails. Varied menu with small plates ideal for sipping wine or cocktails. Appealing large plates with great flavor. The staff is well informed and offered suggestions. A new and different atmosphere for the Baton Rouge market, definitely a must if in Baton Rouge or visiting .
If you enjoy specialty cocktails and small plates, this is the place for you. The atmosphere is enjoyable and there is always a lively crowd in the evenings here. They also offer brunch which has a wide variety of food choices.
