About the Refuge Bar & Bistro
For centuries, the bar and tavern have offered weary customers a place to retreat from the elements and end a hard day of labor. The Refuge Bar & Bistro is designed to transport visitors to a better place.
The refuge has a subtly splendid style, one that echoes an earlier time. Its dark wood, ornate ceiling, luscious antique-y wallpaper, mahogany bar stained deep with Angostura bitters, and intimate ambiance provide the chance for a transformative moment. Here, your life just might change.
You’ll know you’re in for a very good drink, a fact made evident by the massive bottle shelf behind the elongated bar, packed with a vast array of spirits, liqueurs and mixers, microbrew beers, boutique wines, along with old bar bottles and bar equipment. When sitting at the bar by yourself or with a friend—in the thick of the action, the way Refuge is best experienced—gazing at the choices, it’s obvious that this is a place in which the creation of cocktails is serious business.
An Artisanal Approach to Food and Drink
Plan on having a couple, because they’re delicious, and that way, you’ll get to see more of the bartenders plying their trade with cool efficiency. But be sure that one of your drinks is the Refuge Old Fashion. Buffalo Trace Bourbon, House Bitters, Simple Syrup, and an Orange Peel. A combination of classic and modern—sum up Refuge perfectly.
