THANKS TO EVERYONE WHO MADE OUR 2ND TALES OF THE COCKTAIL A SUCCESS,

We will be closed July 26th and 27th for maintenance.

Our hours are: Sunday-Thursday 3PM-11PM Friday and Saturday 12 Noon-11PM

For parties of 5 or more, reservations are suggested. We cannot generally accommodate parties over 8.

Minors are only permitted to sit in the restaurant, not the bar or lounge. If your party includes anyone under the age of 21, please call and speak to a manager about our policies.

Jeff “Beachbum” Berry has spent the last two decades unearthing and publishing “lost” exotic drinks, the best of which you’ll find on this menu, along with some originals and new interpretations of old classics.

We also offer an extensive menu of standard cocktails, highballs, and straight pours.
