Is it the place on the corner where you meet your friends after work? The neighborhood pub that has all your favorite beers from the U.K.? Or maybe the spot on the other side of town where you know

From its main bar to reservation-only snugs, this hip venue delivers handcrafted American cocktails.- Google
"Small bar, but excellent cocktails and excellent whiskey selection."
"They also barrel-age their own spirits which is pretty cool."

Do you want a nice place with a very "chill" ambiance? Well this is definitely the spot to be, not pretentious at all but every bit as good. The cocktails are expertly crafted, and the barmen/ladies are truly invested in the craft. If I had more stars I'd give them to this place.

I can only speak to going on a Tuesday night, but I thought the atmosphere was great. They have these great very private booths to sit in. Four of us shared a punchbowl, which was delicious. And we were provided a pitcher of water. I'd definitely go back for drinks!

The drinks were decent, though some seemed a little watered down. I do feel they need some bar bites. Many people like snacking on food with their drinks. They only have beer nuts and even that was out the day I came. Tried their Hurricane Punch Bowl, which was good and fruity. I do like the semi-private booths on the side of the room. Like most bars, it's very dim with an old school vibe and wooden bar and tables.

Ready for some serious bar experience? Tuck in your shirt, put on your vest, flex your taste buds. Welcome to Tradition. Reminiscing the times of the prohibition, this bar keeps the tradition alive: dim lights, a long, wodden bar, and several booths with high walls that allow intimite conversations. Tradition prides itself in handcrafted cocktails with a personal twist by the bartender - and let me tell you, they certainly know what they do. Their selection of high quality whiskeys is impressive - if you're up for something customized, you'll most likely get it your way. A classy place, this Tradition.

One of my favorite TL bars. Has that Speakeasy feel. Get a private booth if you can.

Awesome place to grab a drink. I'd recommend the Afternoon Tea Sour. It's not always on the menu, but they know how to make it. It incorporates egg whites!!

Super pretentious and rude bartenders. I asked for a crown and coke and was laughed at. Give me a break.

A great spot for well-made drinks. The scene is mellow, which is conducive for those who want to catch up with friends over thoughtfully made cocktails. The bartenders are very knowledgeable and can make you something off menu based on your unique taste. In addition to the pleasing decor, they always have amazing music playing. Sometimes the music can be a bit loud, and you find yourself shouting at your friends, but you can still appreciate the great selection of songs. It's also pretty cool to see the bartenders climbing the ladders to grab some rye and occasionally you'll catch some 'tenders breathing fire. Great location - easy to walk to from Bart. I think they're also owned by the same owners of Bourbon and Branch and Local Edition. I'd say it's the more relaxed of the siblings.
