The Deep South meets the Old West in this homage to the American saloon
With white walls, an immaculate bar and smooth timber tables, this place scrubs up nicer than any saloon we’ve ever set foot in. As a framed photo of lawman and barman Pat Garrett looks down on us and Charles Bradley wails “why is it so hard… to make it in America?” as we peruse the beer list: a swag of greats of the American craft brewing scene (Anchor Steam Beer, Sierra Nevada Pale Ale) plus experimental brews like the potent Resin Imperial IPA from Brooklyn’s Sixpoint Brewery and the malty, smoky Dirty Bastard Scotch Ale from Michigan’s Founders Brewing Company.
It’s all about the shooters, slammers, chasers and cocktails here; don’t leave without dabbling with El Diablo. Made with Botella del Sol tequila, hibiscus, lime, and ginger beer, it’s a dangerous mix we could drink all night. Dude food is the name of the game with chilli mac and cheese, cornbread and jalapeño poppers on the menu.
