I decided to finally come down and try out the Stache on a Sunday night at about 7:30. I snagged a spot out front and I was kind of in the red a little bit but I pulled it off no problem. Parking is a bit of an issue here because it is right in the middle of 4th street so if you have a motorcycle (like I do) its probably best to drive that as parking wont be so much of an issue.
The Stache doesn’t look like a very fancy craft cocktail kind of a place as you approach it from the outside. Actually when you go inside it doesn’t really seem like that either but this is the way I like my bars. When I came in the jukebox was playing “A Horse with No Name” by America and people were loud and kind of rowdy. Loving it!
There is a pool table in the back which is kind of where I sat when I bellied up to the bar and there were about 6 people back there playing doubles and having a good time. There was room to shoot pool without jabbing the people sitting at the bar so that is a bit of a bonus.
I ordered the Nose Neighbor which has try organic vanilla vodka, lime juice, simple syrup and fresh mint. I am pretty much a noob when it comes to craft cocktails so I always like to get things started with a Vodka based drink. I liked the vodka and the bits of fresh mint. I think the mint pretty much made the drink for me.
This was my first stop out of three and The Stache Bar has been on my list of places to check out so I did the One and Run thing. Thanks for the great cocktail and see you next time!
