Bartender was incredibly rude to us.

So we walk down the stairs and go up to the bar to figure out what to drink. Without even saying a word I can tell the bartender has it out for us. We look around to get some kind of indicator as to what they serve...so we could order our drinks. With no visible tabs, fridge, signs, menu, specials, or anything...we're not even 100% certain if they serve beer. All we can see are the dimly lit outlines of what we assume are liquor bottles. So I decide to just ask if there are any drink menus we can look at...I guess that was my first mistake. He looked up from his phone for a second, rolled his eyes, and said no. Okay...I guess this bar is too small/divey/trendy or whatever to indicate in some manner that they serve drinks...that's fine.

Not being able to see anything that they serve...one of our friends takes a shot in the dark and asks for an Old Fashioned. That was our second mistake, we were rudely told "we don't make Old Fashions." The bartender was at least off of his phone at this point...but clearly already had it about up to here with our pesky questions...so our friend takes another shot in the dark and asks for a Manhattan. The bartender starts to tell us again that they can't make Manhattans...but something happened mid-sentence that made him change his mind. Not really sure what happened there...but he starts to begrudgingly make a Manhattan. One of our other friends decides (I assume in the interest of keeping things simple) to make it two Manhattans...and again the bartender indicates that he is incredibly annoyed by the request.

As he is making the Manhattans I decide to just keep it simple as possible and order one of the dimly lit bottles neat...as I was getting kind of a Soup Nazi vibe from the bartender. My friend makes out that one of the bottles is Bulleit and orders it neat. The bartender asks if he wants the rye or bourbon...and I can hear the eyes rolling in his voice. So to keep things simple I order the same...which again triggers an audible sigh from the bartender. Mind you the bar is almost completely empty...and there's nobody behind us waiting in line.

So we finally get our drinks and the bartender goes back to staring at his phone...I figure everything is right with the world again. We sit down and notice that there are in fact drink menus on the tables...that could have saved us a few of the eye rolls but what are you going to do?

About 20 minutes later a different person in our group decides to get round two and we all decide at the table to order the same bottles of draft beer...as tending a bar seems to really irritate this bartender. The bartender didn't like his tip from the first round of drinks and says something to the effect of "a slight from one person in the group is a slight from the whole group" and indicates that we all need to finish our drinks immediately and "get the fuck out." He then goes back to his phone and we immediately leave the almost-empty bar.

I guess this place caters more to politicians needing a quick escape while in session...and not to a small group of friends looking to grab a quick drink in the back corner of a bar after work. Either way, it was very clear right off the bat that there was nothing we could have said to this bartender that wouldn't have resulted in extreme irritation.

I guess being incredibly rude to everyone is part of whatever the trendy/divey/no sign/no website/no drink menu/no cocktails image they are trying to cultivate. It's a curious business strategy.

Grab a drink at the famous Cloak room across from the state capital. It's a legislative dive bar of sorts. It's worth stopping in during Happy Hour.

We all know a lot of political issues are worked out behind the scenes. In this case, some is bantered over underground. This dark basement bar promises nothing more than a drink in your hand, always refilled in quick fashion. It dates back to the 1970s. Though many of today's political frontrunners steer clear of a bar a block from where official business is done, it's still a favorite among many staffers and lobbyists.
