Had some excellent cocktails at The Patterson House in Nashville last night. A cool, classic speakeasy bar that seems to do everything the way it should be done. They have a few rules like no phone calls, only texting, you cannot approach a female unless you're being introduced by a friendly party, you must be seated to order a drink, and a few others. They obviously just want you to focus on the experience of a bartender crafting a drink. I'll post up some pics later today.
This guy has been there since they opened. You could pretty much sit there and talk with him about every possible type of drink.
Juliet and Romeo. Plymouth gin, lime, mint, cucumber, rose water.
Cannot remember the name of this for the life of me. It's only on their winter menu. Very similar to what you just made Pio. Bourbon, orange juice, bitters, some type of cinnamon and spice liqueur/flavoring.
Their take on an Old Fashioned with Bulleit.
Also had an Aviation and a Sidecar. Both were excellent. Apparently there is a normally a pretty long wait, as it is a smaller establishment and not meant for people to be crammed in, but we were able to get seated right away with a party of 2.Edited by Pilot - 12/1/12 at 2:54pm
