I met some friends here who were bar crawling. The drinks were good (we had a few old fashioneds), the karoake DJ was on point, great energy and the place wasn't too crowded. Would totally go back!

The concept is cool - a kind of speakeasy-style lounge tucked away in the basement of an old building only accessed by a set of long stairs in the alley. The Blind Donkey is spare inside, a big space with dim moody lighting and groups...More

When travelling, we love to find interesting after dinner drinks. This was a very cool find. Hidden in the basement sure adds to the atmosphere. We sat at the bar and the bartenders were knowledgeable about their whiskies. The reason we were there was their...More

A nice local bar specializing in bourbons and whiskeys. A typical mid 30s local crowd, upscale and hip, not glamorous. Bar is in a basement, dark, well decorated with pool tables and the most worn dart board I have ever seen. A great collection of...More

The first time I came here, I loved it. Unfortunately, the service is very hit or miss. For what they're charging for small pours, I expect the service to be on point every time.
