Love love love! We came on a quiet Sunday afternoon and got a cute table upstairs in a quiet nook. We took the bartender’s recommendations and got some amazing drinks. The Saturday Satan was easily my favorite. Fancy-Like, Sasquatch, and Autumn Angler were all great choices too.

Amazing architecture and interior design at this place. Friday evening we were able to be seated right away upstairs. Our drinks were unique and delicious.

Great atmosphere in this place. Definitely worth a visit and for locals The Spot. We did a quick stop and got amazing cocktails with an appetizer. Definitely not big meals here. Just socialize and hangout. Decor is so perfect for what places is. Very unique cocktails for sure.

Best cocktail bar in town, hands down! Bartenders are the most knowledgeable and Antidote has the best decor with every detail well thought out.I was surprised when we hadn't heard of this place but we were walking by and decided to look it up, so glad we did! We had the best cocktails we've had all week, and asked for several custom drinks which were all so well done. Get a smokey old fashioned with some Lagavulin!They do gin tastings if you're into that, but you cannot leave Asheville without visiting Antidote.

A real fun drinking experience!! I love the decor and ambience of an old vintage chemist/pharmacy shop. Nice selection of cocktail and drinks.

Great atmosphere, delicious cocktails! The gin is distilled on-site. Best G&T’s and super interesting. Women owned!!!

Great find on the South Slope. Down the Rabbit Hole is a drink I could have all day long. Staff was very helpful in guiding you towards a satisfying drink. Fun little alcoves for seating. Live music and a beautiful outdoor seating area. Can't recommend enough!

I can't believe I didn't visit this place sooner! The vibe here is so cool. Great drinks in a cozy atmosphere - there is a beautiful rooftop patio (that fills up quickly) and a bunch of unique rooms and sitting areas both inside and outside.

Loved this place! Some friends stopped by with my wife and I during a trip to Asheville. Drinks were really interesting/great and the ambiance was super cool. And of course you can't beat the location.

Enjoyed this cocktail bar and its slight speakeasy vibe with its antiqued decor. Drinks were great and perfectly balanced and the bartenders were very nice! The lady in the gift shop could’ve been friendlier though, but overall we enjoyed this bar.

Very cool chemistry themed distillery and cocktail bar. Great selection of unique gins and amazing cocktails. If you are a gin lover this place is a must go.

I loved the vibes here!it's cute and cozy and the gift shop offered a lot of cute gifts if you needed to get one for a loved one. It's different than the many breweries that are located around it so it's definitely worth stopping and having a drink.

A good friend of ours recommended Antidote as a great place for special cocktails. It was our first time in Asheville, and Antidote was great! My wife had the Bee's Sneeze, which has a wonderful honey flavor with a hint of saltiness, while I had the Down the Rabbit Hole, which was great too. The outside seating area is cute with only a few tables, while the inside had great character, with its classic and timeless look, and pleasant background music. Would highly recommend!

I loved the atmosphere of this bar! I had a relatively large party (8 people) but we were able to be seated in about 30 min. The drinks here are either very strong or taste like juice. The bittersweet symphony was the former and the serene state of mind was the latter. The bittersweet symphony tastes like a negroni which is a polarizing drink so beware of that.
