One of the most intriguing eras in human history was the Roaring Twenties. Many things were changing and history was being made, including the Prohibition and the birth of speakeasies. The owners of these hidden bars often acted as doormen, granting access only to those who knew the password. Although there are no passwords to enter Wiseguy Lounge, it does embody the energy and ambience of the 1920's with a modern twist. Not in plain sight, but when found, you will experience calm low lighting, dark rich wood, leather sofas, elite bourbons, craft cocktails, and knowledgeable well-dressed bartenders that can create any cocktail to satisfy your needs.
Bourbon is in our blood! Though our hearts are in the north, our roots are in the south. As Kentucky natives, it is only right that we pay homage and feature the one drink that has made this state stand out from the rest. This barrel aged distilled spirit made primarily of corn, is best described as a soothing eye opener. Wiseguy Lounge stocks a plethora of fine bourbons and welcomes all guests to join our Bourbon Connoisseurs Club. Throughout the year we host tastings in which Master Distillers visit and educate our patrons on this time honored tradition.
Hand Crafted Cocktails
During the Prohibition, a large emphasis of craft cocktails was placed on the creation of exceptional syrups, juices, and bitters that averted the taste buds from the over powering potency of alcohol. Honoring our heritage, the Wiseguy Lounge uses only fresh pressed juices and homemade syrups to complement our prestigious cocktails. Making a cocktail is not a routine; it is a craft! Our talented and knowledgeable staff can be found using glass beakers, dropper bottles, zesters, and open flames to concoct the perfect balance of flavors. Try the house favorite Moscow Mule or our award winning Boss-Manhattan.
The Dame's List
Each cocktail is named after a prominent women in history that defined both class and sophistication like Betty Davis and Audrey Hepburn. These martinis are fun, flirty, and palate pleasing. Every season has a flavor, and Wiseguy Lounge tries to capture those familiar feelings and present you with an experience. Warm and comforting is what is often thought of during the cold winter months with hints of peppermint, chocolate and other rich flavors, while something light, fruity and refreshing is associated with hot summer days. Tuesday nights are Ladies Night, so stop in and enjoy one of these classic cocktails on special.
With seasonal, rotating handles, Wiseguy Lounge is an avid believer in supporting local and microbreweries that place an emphasis on flavor and brewing techniques. We stock unique sought-after beers, and keep our selection diverse. Please join us for one of many educational tastings, where Master Brewers from all over, visit and offer sampling to our beer enthusiasts.
