Not what we expected
Amazing aesthetic. Drinks were just okay. A little unorganized but a nice time overall. Server was taking care of the whole upstairs and did an amazing job.
For a speakeasy type cocktail bar their knowledge of cocktails, spirits and even cocktail glass varieties was astonishingly limited. We usually don’t know more than the bar staff. Our waiter was amazing though. He was friendly and accommodating.
We loved the location and the drinks, the speakeasy vibe is very cool as well. They automatically add a 20% tip, which we did not like as the bartender was not as friendly because he was automatically getting his tip.
Overall ambience and place was very cool. Drinks were good, food options were limited but good. We were a table of 6 so there was automatically 20% gratuity applied which I felt the server took advantage of. Our server continually ignored us and was very stand offish and never brought out one of our food orders. When we asked about it he said he would get it, then brought the check and said nothing about the food that was never delivered. Everything was great except for the waiter. The hostess and others were friendly and accommodating.
A great FIND of a restaurant with simple tasty plates.
Drinks were great but the food menu was lackluster. My grilled cheese was super bland. Overall would come back but only for drinks. Definitely eat before you go.
Great vibe and awesome service !
To be fair it’s not that the food was bad, rather that there was none. Like none. Not even snacks. There was no chef or kitchen staff for the day.
The Blind Barber was me and my boyfriend first speakeasy experience ever. It was definitely super fun and exciting. The decor was beautiful and our bartender, Brynn was so awesome! We aren’t locals and she was able to suggest some other places to check out during our stay which we really appreciated! We would definitely come back next time we’re in town!
Very small and mediocre cocktails if you sit outside. Supposedly indoor cocktail options are better. Friendly staff though.
This place was not entirely what I was expecting. Our server was great and was able to make great drink recommendations for us based on our preferences. He was also very attentive. Unfortunately, this place fell short on the ambiance. There were only a couple tables when we first arrived but then a large group of about 20 people came in and it turned into a different scene. The group was largely walking around without masks and turned the low-key cocktail bar vibe into a loud, obnoxious party scene. I also had to use my phone flashlight to find my way to the bathroom because the bathroom hallway was very dark. I would consider trying this place again and hoping my experience was only tainted by the large group that came in.
Obnoxiously loud! Not the vibe for speakeasy, couldn’t carry a conversation.
Waiter was not attentive and didn’t take food order
Definitely a neat place, drinks were definitely over priced and small. Would go back for beers for sure!
Loved the place and drinks were fabulous. What a speak easy should be . Please don’t go hungry as food is not what you are coming for
Got the hot heather drink - was awesome. Loved the vibe & service was on point.
Super safe and chill environment, bartender/waiter was affable and also courteous to all guest
Drinks were so good. The ambience was fun and low key. The staff was very knowledge about drinks and helping us figure out what we wanted.
One of the coolest places in the city
We made a 10:15 reservation and were told it was last call right when we sat down & were ushered out. If you cannot honor a reservation that late do not have it as an option incredibly rude.
We are so sorry you had a bad experience with us this last weekend. Unfortunately it is currently the city ordinance that we must serve the last drink before 11pm due to Covid . We very much look forward to restrictions lightening up so we can serve later again, but we are sorry that this was such an inconvenience.
There is no food its drinks only
Vibe and atmosphere is excellent but drinks could have been better. For a place without food besides light snacks, you'd expect high quality cocktails.
Great drinks and ambiance! A nice spot to hang out and relax with a date or just friends
We had a great time at the blind barber. Drinks were good and service was nice. Can’t wait to come back.
Loved this spot! Hidden gem. Staff were very friendly and accommodating.
I waited over 30 minutes just to get served kettle chips. Then, each drink took nearly 30 minutes to be served. I felt like I wasn’t getting the same attention that others were receiving.
We sat outside due to COVID but we cannot wait for the inside to open! The staff was welcoming without being overbearing and gave us great beer recommendations!
Enjoyed the drinks had a charcuterie board.. Had to sit outside because their was 5 of us. Unfortunate because the inside is VERY Speakeasy style and we wished we could of enjoyed the ambiance of inside versus outside.. go check it out. Not a “Dinner” place more of a drink and Knosh place
