From its main bar to reservation-only snugs, this hip venue delivers handcrafted American cocktails.- Google

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.

They have a great selection of American whisky cocktails. If you like whisky and cocktails (together) this is the place for you! The bartenders were friendly. We reserved a booth for a small group and had a great time!

This bar gets packed (like good-luck-getting-to-the-bar packed), and its patrons can be moody, but the bar staff are top notch, as are the cocktails. They have some booths and table that are available by reservation. I would definitely look into those if I was you.

Overwhelmingly large drink selection - luckily, the servers are fully capable of giving you good drink recommendations. It can be a bit cramped in their booths, but outside of that it's a great experience.

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.

If you haven't made reservations at Bourbon and Branch, just walk down a block down the street and you can get similar style drinks here at Tradition. They have a bar in the middle of the room and the rest of the sides are reservation only spaces. Sometimes the wait staff are a little rude. We had a group of 10 girls at one of the reserved tables once and they actually told us to be more quiet. I'm sorry but it's a bar, why do I have to keep the noise level down?

From the same guys who started Bourbon and Branch (and apparently RIck House and Local Edition). As the name suggests, this is a full traditional bar and these folks really know how to mix a mean drink. Aside from the delicious cocktails, what truly makes this place unique are the 9 private booths on the other side of the bar which can be reserved through SeatMe. Each one of these compartments are themed and decorated with liquor ads through the ages and for different regions. These themes include an English Pub, Irish Pub, Dive Bar, etc...Of course you can still order any drink on the entire menu but it's really neat to feel like you're enjoying a drink in a completely different era. Those looking to get a bang for your buck, consider a giant punch bowl for just $40 and is served flaming. Let the good times roll!
