The Bar

We feature the largest and finest selection of tequila in the North. Our Margaritas are Michigan’s best; made from scratch with our own freshly squeezed sour mix.  We offer many fun variations on this popular libation. We also put our creativity to work on an assortment of mojitos and other specialty beverages. Local micro brews are featured on tap; wines are available by the glass or bottle.

Seasonal outdoor dining! Traverse City location also offers an outdoor fireplace for a warm ambiance on cooler evenings.

Patio is open from Memorial Day to Labor Day but can be limited due to weather, staffing or bookings. Call for daily seating availability.
