Reviews for The Whistler

Went there on a Thursday night around 6.30pm and the place was already packed. We signed on the waiting list and went somewhere else for drinks and they called us about an hour later to tell us our table was ready. It was a shared table but we didn't mind at all. This place was great, super fun atmosphere, live music, beautiful Christmas decorations and amazing food. We had a couple beers, we had the Nachos and a pizza. Everything tasted incredible. Great combination of full review
One of the best cocktail bars in the country especially when factoring in the reasonable prices. The cocktail menu changes often and while limited, boast wildly creative takes on the classics. Please don't come here to order Jamo & Gingers. .. Awesome staff and a quirky mix of regulars. The music and vibe varies staunchly from night to night depending on the DJ. There's no kitchen, but there's an awesome tamale man that comes in a couple nights each week. I held off on full review

The Whistler knows about good cocktails. The space is cozy, not swanky, sometimes they have great live music, and letter not forget the first Wednesdays movieokie nights! Look those up, they are so fun. Try the curry cocktail (not on the menu apparently one of the originals). This time, I had the John Dough (it has honey in it but is somehow refreshing, not at all too sweet).
