Great night out with a friend here, such a great vibe. Loved that it was a whiskey bar with live music, old school vibe n played some Jenna and connect four! Can go past their Kraken and fresh squeezed apple juice.

Funky little whiskey bar hidden away off the main street. Great venue with friendly staff however every time i have been the live entertainment has put a damper on the night. Terrible performers.
