The bar itself is lovely and my husband and I could easily have had a really nice time but for the bartender. We stayed at the hotel over Valentine's and this was our first stop after we checked in.
My husband had a beer first off, a Ninkasi, that tasted a little off. So for his next drink he decided to get a Maker's old fashioned. As we waited for his drink to arrive, we heard the bartender discussing with an older couple at the bar what he was making for my husband so we were watching him as he made the drink and spoke about it to the couple. As we watched, we saw him poor Jim Beam, a less expensive whiskey, in instead of the Maker's Mark that my husband had ordered. No big deal, we're both in the service industry and we figured he got distracted while talking to the other people, so when the bartender's helper came over with the drink, we asked him if they had made it with Maker's like he ordered. The younger guy went over and asked the bartender, who replied, loudly, that yes, he had made it with Maker's. We were a little stunned. We had seen him poor in the wrong stuff, and now that he was lying about it, we were a less sure that it was a mistake.
Afterwards the bartender never returned to our table and did charge us for the Maker's, an upcharge for the more expensive whiskey. We have been telling everyone we know about the experience to make sure that if they do happen to visit this bar, that they keep an eye on their bartender and their bill.
Cons: The bartender
