In 1938, if you wanted a proper cocktail, you had better find yourself on a steamship, a dinner car, or in a fancy hotel. Bryant Sharp, as in Bryant’s Cocktail Lounge, changed all that, and gave America its first freestanding cocktail lounge. Learn how Bryant’s evolved from a working class shot and beer bar to a classic cocktail spot to a touchstone of living history in what is now called the craft cocktail scene. Owner John Dye will also be giving a tour of this establishment, sharing Bryant’s lore, legend and history. Sipping drinks are encouraged.
