A new bar has debuted in the neighborhood. Located at 82 Hanover St., Suite 7 in West Bayside, the fresh addition is called The Whiskey Barrel.
The Whiskey Barrel specializes in live country music and specialty cocktails. On the menu, expect to see a wide selection of whiskey and scotch, along with specialty boozy beverages like the CrockSide Creamsicle with vanilla vodka, orange juice and soda and cream.
With a four-star rating out of three reviews on Yelp so far, the fresh addition is getting solid feedback from clientele.
Brett F., who was among the first Yelpers to review the new spot on June 2, wrote, "This is a country bar, but without the kitsch and an emphasis on live country bands. Outdoors is also spacious, with various games and fire pits. Wisely, there's an outdoor cash bar for quick beer refills."
And George G. wrote, "The inside bar offers tons of seats and fast service. The outside offers comfortable laid back seating with amenities and an outdoor bar. The live music was amazing and the drinks were on point."
Swing on by to take a peek for yourself: The Whiskey Barrel is open from 4 p.m.–1 a.m. on Monday-Thursday, noon–1 a.m. on Friday and Saturday and noon–10 p.m. on Sunday.
