The Ball & Biscuit

Service: Very nice bartender, amazing vibe.

Booze: That’s what it’s all about. They have a long list of wonderful cocktails made with unique craft spirits and a nice beer selection, including one of my favorites, Kentucky bourbon barrel ale. They also carry my favorite bourbon, Bulleit AND the 10 year, which I had never seen prior to this. Soo yum.

Food: Booze is food.

Smoking Flower | high west campfire whiskey, st. germain, dry vermouth & savory & james sherry $ 11

El Comediante | caliche rum infused with red bell pepper, wilks & wilson ginger simple syrup, gosling’s ginger beer, lime & a float of red wine $ 11

Hummus plate | $ 10

Mac ‘n cheese dog | $ 10

Smoking Goose butcher plate | $ 15

The cocktails were delicious and strong. The food was very tasty, too. I was particularly fond of the hummus and tzatziki with delightfully crispy breads, and Jaybird loved the sweet pickles, olives and Smoking Goose’s fireball sausage. And of course, how can one go wrong with mac on a dog? Straight comfort food, son! They offer a very basic menu of small plates, but it’s done right with quality local cheeses, meats and breads.

Kudos: Atmosphere, atmosphere, atmosphere. The Biscuit has it. Everywhere you look, there’s something of interest. My blues man especially enjoyed the harmonica mic wall decor by his “new favorite chair.”

Overall: It’s easy to get carried away, but overall the prices are reasonable and the lounge experience is worth it. I was drunk, fat and happy for around $100, so it isn’t an every day bar, but perfect for an occasional date night.
