This isn't just a favorite local watering hole. It's an elegant yet fun place that visitors have deemed an iconic and must-see stop.

As part of a fine dining atmosphere, the bar carries the most eclectic selection of bourbons in town (2 dozen, in fact), as well as American, Irish and Canadian whiskeys, and the finest vodkas, rums and gins, some of which are made in the Galena area. This is the home of the 'bourbon flights!'

Vino lovers enjoy a distinctive variety of red blends for all palates and Riedel glasses are used to enhance the experience. Plus, there's $3 glasses of house wine each Wednesday and one-half off full bottles each Friday! A featured wine that compliments a featured entrée is offered nightly.

Dig suds? There's a wide selection of food-friendly beers in this cozy, inviting and lively restaurant with historic charm, along with everyone's favorite cocktails.
