Bar / Lounge / Bottle Service
Not only did we remodel the bar we remodeled our food as well. Now featuring a variety of high end small plates, salumi’s and cheese’s, sandwiches, entrees, and desserts. Our food offerings promise to tantalize all tastes and pair well with our signature cocktails. Bourbon House is a great place to get a pint with lunch, to unwind after work with the crew and a bourbon on the rocks, or to party into the night with your closest or newest friends and the coldest beer downtown. Ten draft beers, 44 bottles of beer on the wall, and 12 wines by the glass should keep everybody happy. Yes, we are famous for our Pickle Back shots (ask your server), but if you fancy a Hamm’s, well we have a 16oz Tall Boy for only 3 bucks. Our house whiskeys, Jameson and Makers Mark, are incredibly only 4 bucks. And of course, with 150 different spirits at their fingertips, our talented bartenders can make anything to satisfy your taste buds. Must be 21 or oler to dine at

    Food was great, service was excellent. Location was a little hard to find, it is located in the lower level of the Walker Center downtown. Lively atmosphere but not overwhelmingly loud. Great selection of bourbons and ryes at reasonable prices.

    Cocktails were slow to arrive at the table and the restaurant was not that crowded during our visit. Felt our server may have had too many tables assigned to her or the bar may have not been staffed enough. Having waited tables in my past, the rule of "get drinks out to the tables right away" has left customers feeling much more satisfied with the experience. At fine dining I can be patient waiting on food but cocktails and other drinks need to be on the table(s) pronto.

    Disappointing experience. Arrived at our 6:15 reservation to grab a couple of drinks and dinner before our show at 8. Started off fine - got our first drinks and some fried pickles & jalapeños (average). Ordered our entrees (with the same guy who we ordered our apps) and then proceeded to wait about 20-25 mins. Server (girl) came back and asked if we wanted any more food or drinks. We ordered second drinks and said that the other guy had taken our food order. Waited another 15 mins for drinks to arrive. No food came. Around 7:30!! a server finally came back (no where to he found for a while) and told us our food was never put in. They offered to make it on the house (well duh) but we didn’t have time. Left feeling hungry. At least they tried to make it right with our food, but our empty drinks and water glasses all night also made it a poor experience.

    Amazing little bar and restaurant located in the basement of the Walker Center. You could easily walk right past this place if you didn't know it was there. Full service bar with a nice bar menu of sandwiches and small plates. I tried the Chicken Saltimbocca sandwich. Quite tasty. If you're going to the Eccles theater it is close by for dining before the show.

    Excellent cocktail menu, creative and classics. Also has a great variety of bourbon (of course & beers). The atmosphère is very speakeasy. The food is quite good also, although they were out of about half the appetizers. The table was quite sticky, not sure if the wood needs a refinish, but all in all quite a nice place.

    This speakeasy restaurant & bar is a unique dining experience. As you descend downstairs into a dark stairwell you hear some old time music. Then it opens up into a nice bar with dark woods and warm decor. The drink menu is expansive and you'll find almost everything you need. Living up to their namesake there are plenty of bourbon choices on the menu. For dinner I had one of my favorite dishes the shrimp & grits. Their version is nice and spicy and filling. The grits were creamy and topped with four jumbo shrimp. It paired nicely with my Bourbon House Old Fashioned.

    Always on the look out for a relaxing and inconspicuous "speakeasy" which this sort of was...being in the basement of the Walker Center. Ambiance was a mix between a sports bar and a speakeasy. Could have done without the Televisions but alright/whatever. Service was nice but not super attentive. Overall would return as menu and drinks were good.

    A great experience overall. Staff was very knowledgeable about liquors and mixed drinks, the food, and had some good recommendations. Steak was almost A+ but a little too bloody and ended up soaking the fries a bit too much. That said, was still absolutely one of the best steaks I have had in a long time. Cocktails were done to perfection, and the ambience was great! A little goofy coming down into the bar with the talking pictures but was otherwise a very quaint and well kept establishment. And for the price its hard to beat, especially being a down-town Salt Lake City locale. Highly recommend at least trying once if you want a great experience!

    Incredible atmosphere, a true speak easy walking in. That is where it stops however. Staff was unbelievably unprofessional. Goofing off the entire time. We asked for a booth and received a high top, and they were less than friendly to try and help us. We stayed there, and made the best of it. Weird space once your inside (maybe different in an actual booth)? Food was mediocre at best. Tot nachos were awful, and deviled eggs just ok. Definitely won’t be back, so many other incredible places in SL
