As they are a liquor store through and through, you can order up all the classic and creative drinks you can think of. They have a short menu full of ideas to consider from Moscow Mules to the tried and true Old Fashioned. They are happy to oblige special requests, however, as long as they know the recipe or you can provide it.

When you prefer something a little simpler, their menu also features craft draft beer by the boatload, including IPAs and barrel ales. If you cannot choose between all the excellent craft brews, order up a flight to sample up to four of your top choices. Each drink you choose will come in a sample size three-ounce glass perfect for tasting. If your first taste does not reveal a clear winner, order up another set of four to find your perfect drinks.

No matter what you order, you can sidle up to the bar or head over to the pool tables or air hockey table to play a few games. They also have several tall chairs for guests to perch on as they sip their drinks and watch whatever is playing on the TVs behind the bar.

Patrons’ favorite drinks include:

Kentucky Bourbon Vanilla Cream Ale
If deep complex flavors suit your fancy, then give the Kentucky Bourbon Vanilla Cream Ale a try. This drink features a soft cream ale aged in bourbon barrels until all its complicated flavors develop. You get 13 delightful ounces per order, giving you more than a taste of this icy cold craft draft beer.

Gulf of Mexico
When you want something sweet yet tart, nothing else will do but the Gulf of Mexico. They make this cocktail using a base of Captain Morgan Parrot Bay Rum. To that, they add equal parts pineapple juice and blue curacao to jazz up the flavors.

Raspberry Redfish
With its fizzy mouthfeel and bright flavors, the Raspberry Redfish promises to keep you on your toes. This drink begins with Chandon Rose Champagne and Smirnoff Raspberry Vodka. The flavors are heightened by Chambord Sweet and Sour plus fresh raspberry to finish it all off right.

When you want somewhere fun to watch upcoming boxing matches and other sports events, get your tickets to this venue. They sell a limited number of wristbands for each event to create a cohesive group of sports enthusiasts. By limiting their seats, they give everyone plenty of elbow room while keeping the excitement at the perfect level.
