Casey Shelton – Manager
In the words of Jack Torrance, "The best goddamn bartender from Timbuktu to Portland, Maine or Portland, Oregon for that matter." Sit with him for 20 minutes, you'll agree.
Mary Dale – Cocktail Waitress & Bartender
She'll beat you in fantasy football, but by luck. She's like the girl next door, only next door they drink whiskey and talk smack. Keep an eye on her, she's trouble.
Guerin Bell - Bartender
He looks innocent, but he's not. He's like a secret weapon, except that weapon is a spork. Give him a hard time, he enjoys it.
Jack McDowell - Host
Jack's a lot like Patrick Swayze. Not sure if it's Roadhouse Swayze, Outsiders Swayze or Point Break. But he's pretty Swayze.
Cody Mashni- Bartender & Barback
One of the nicest guys you will meet, Cody will happily make you the cocktail of your choice. He is a Red Sox fan, so he's not perfect. What can you do?
Brandi Gaspard - Cocktail Waitress & Bartender
What can we say about Brandi? She still likes bourbon and bearded men, in that order. She makes a killer drink. She has the gift of sarcasm.
Quinton Burke - Bartender
He's actually from South Africa, in case you're trying to figure out that ridiculous accent.
Shmitty - Host & Barback
Part 1840's gold prospector, Shmitty is a jack of all trades and master of some. We're just not sure what they are.

A play on the Negroni with Correlejo reposado tequila and Tiki Bitters. Don't know what that means? That's ok. We still like you.
A timeless clasic. Start with fresh lime, orange bitters, Plymouth Gin and a dash of cointreau. Sublime.
Pineapple ginger mint shrub with the owner's private barrel Maestro Dobel tequila. Stirred over a rock.

The most amazing sparkling cocktail you'll ever have. Pear preserves, Sapphire gin, lemon, cointreau and a splash of Asti.
Fresh seasonal berries, Russian Standard vodka, ginger liqueur and ginger beer. Modern spin on the classic mule.
Can't decide between a beer or a cocktail? Have both in the same glass! Crazy, you say? Delicious we say!
Orange Jalapeno Margarita
We didn't invent the jalapeno regardless of what you've heard. We just make it better by adding to a really great margarita.
We specialize in all of the classics, from an algonquin to a zombie. We hand stir our martinis, make our own syrups, sours, shrubs and will happily create a custom drink just for you. We make real drinks for people who enjoy the art of drinking. Watch the magic and join in. You'll never be disappointed.
Of course, if you just want a beer, that's cool! We have a strong beer list with lots of local and craft brews! Just ask for the menu!
