The Watch Company is a 2 level lounge with a speakeasy vibe and features gigantic antique safes in the ladies room and the balcony which were too heavy and expensive to move. Original tile floors and upstairs balcony will take you back in time.

The staple drink, old-fashioneds come in four flavours: rye,bourbon, sotol or Haitian rum, each for only $8. Happy hour is even more of a steal: half-price on all wine and select whiskey and Lone Star longnecks for $2.
