The menu is limited but really good, we go every week for trivia (which is awesome). Lots of couches/chairs/bar stools so something for everyone. Bartender on Monday (Mike) is great, always friendly and attentive.

Came here for New Year's Eve with some friends. Very spacious with tables, couches, and seats at the bar. Very "hipster" vibe. I haven't tried the food here, but I've heard it's not bad.

Had a great time here thanks to Jimmy the bartender. This is a cool looking place with a great vibe. The crowd was more mature and well dressed which pleased us. The food was decent and the drink selection was unbeatable. It helps that the staff know their alcohol and offer alternative suggestions on your favourite liquor.

1200 items to select from all different liquors. Great place to be to get away from the traditional bar scene. Quieter, comfortable chairs/ couches. Staff know all their beverages quite well Nice reprieve to enjoy a relaxing end of day adult beverage

If you are looking for a great choice of fine selected Whiskeys or Rum's I'd highly recommend to not miss Al's Wine & Whiskey Lounge. Located in down town, Armory Square, it is the best place to go after having had a dinner in one of the various restaurants around the place.

Choice. If you're going to be a great whiskey bar then you have to have a giant wall of choices. Done. Al's wall is impressive and daunting. A great spot for after work whiskey and a a good charcuterie plate. Worth the walk to Armory Sq from Marriott

Liked this place a lot. Made a mean Sazerac, good music, local vibe (law and medical students, et al.). Music a bit too loud, making conversation difficult. Nonetheless... if i lived here, this'd be my hangout.

My wife and I had a little time to kill, so we stopped in to have a glass of wine. What a place. It was a little busy when we got there, so we ordered our drinks at the bar and waited for a couple of stools to open up at the bar so we could sit down. We generally... More

Live music! An all around great vibe! Drinks-a-plenty. Good crowd and plenty comfy couches to hang with friends or play pool in the back!
