The Barrelhouse Flat

The Barrelhouse Flat

Added by Eric P

Appears in 2 Collections

Founded in 2011 by Violet Hour alum Stephen Cole, dual-level Barrelhouse Flat boasts an impressive menu of seldom-seen classics, organized from light and refreshing (Airmail, Cablegram) to strong and aromatic (Burnt Fuselage, Jimmie Roosevelt). An impressive list of house cocktails rotates monthly, and tasty sustenance (currywurst is the best) offers incentive to stay for a few rounds.

THE DRINK TO DRINK: ​Any of the house cocktails or monthly specials, like the Happy Manhattan with Wild Turkey rye, Cardamaro, Angostura

KNOW BEFORE YOU GO: ​The lower-level bar is more workaday, with a dozen barstools and as many booths, while the upstairs parlor invites plush, comfortable lounging.
