Located just off Crown Street in the alley behind American Apparel, this underground bar has an American wild west theme - expect deer heads on the walls and country music. Specialises in obscure whiskeys and bourbons.
Sometimes you wanna go where everybody knows your name, and friends are always glad you came.

Underground whiskey bar with fun decor and staff who know their thing. It's like Baxters with a bit less swank, a few fewer suits, more peanuts (and peanut shells everywhere!) and more live music (which can be a bit too loud sometimes, is my only complaint about the place).
If you want something cool, loud and awesome, this is the place! It's hidden pretty well so you'll need to look for it if it is your first time but it's totally worth it. Love the 'Canada-hunting' vibe decor all around with a touch of hillbilly. It does get super loud and rowdy so prepare yourself.
