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

Wonderful welcoming service. Fabulous food. We asked about tasting a bourbon from their extensive menu, the manager brought over a tray of bourbons, explaing their taste and characters. We chose one, (his favorite). He brought it to the table explained about a few drops of water to smooth it out. Fabulous! Waiter was exceptional. Thank you!

We were greeted immediately with warmth, even though we came a couple minutes before opening. They immediately knew who we were as I had placed a reservation that said it was our 12th anniversary. All staff were super friendly and kind. Absolutely LOVED this vibe this place had. They put every detail into making this a true speakeasy. From the moment you enter to climb down the stairs into Bourbon House, you hear 1920’s old time music playing, with laughter in the background. It was like you were taking a jump back in time! The hallway you walk through to get into the restaurant, is lined with bourbon, backlit with lighting in shelving that was such a neat showpiece.
Food and drinks were the best!!
We tried the totchos, which is an absolute MUST if you love tots! We also split the steak dish with aioli and garlic fries. Steak was done perfectly and the sauce was so good! The fries were amazing as well, but as we just had tots, we unfortunately were too full to finish! Portions were great!
Now on to the drinks: the perfect Manhattan and old fashioned were my husbands favorites! We both loved how their drink menu told you about the history of each drink! We loved the little touches they did to make this experience just superb!
We are from Detroit, our first time here and we would definitely visit again if we are ever in Salt Lake City again! Great job to all the staff! It was perfect for our Anniversary dinner! Thank you!!

Food was great. Reservation was honored right on time. Service was a little slow and the noise level was super loud to the point it was hard to hear across the table. Overall good experience but could be improved.

The food was ok but my husband was thrilled with the scotch offerings. Our waiter was super friendly, patient, and so helpful. The atmosphere was disappointing! Given the total speak easy vibes of it being in a basement, I felt like they really did not play into that decor wise as much as they could.

I enjoyed BH but not as much as their sister restaurants, White Horse and Whiskey Street. The food was good and the atmosphere was super cool. Struggled a little to communicate with my server with his wearing a mask and a music speaker directly over our table. He got my order wrong but it was quickly fixed to their credit. This place would be fantastic for groups but not the best for a couple wanting a romantic dinner.

My wife and I decided to check out Bourbon House for date night. We loved the food, the quiet atmosphere, cocktails, and service. We shared the bacon wrapped jalapenos and deviled eggs for an appetizer. Everything was delicious! I got the braised short rib that was cooked perfectly and paired it with the dark rye boulevardier. My wife got the chicken carbonara and a new york sour. We were both happy with how quickly the food came out and the portion sizes. We really appreciated the manager coming over to check on us and answering a few questions we had about the vast selection of bourbons they carry. We will definitely come back!

I've been to Bourbon House multiple times. I've always had a great experience. This one was different. The service was below average. Delivery times for food and especially drink, were way off. Our waitress seemed bothered when we turned back a glass of wine that didn't arrive while we were actually eating our meal. She didn't offer us a dessert menu. She didn't offer us takeaway boxes. She dropped the check and left. And then when she split the check, she split it unevenly, and disappeared forcing us to go track down a manager as well as asking another member of the wait staff for a to-go box. I now this place has been better in the past. I will likely give it another try and some point, but they'll lose me sending anybody there for the time being until I know that my last experience was an aberration.

We had a table of 10 so they put us in our own private area in the back which I thought was nice. We were not surrounded by anyone and we were socially distanced from everyone. The waiter was great, he was very attentive and was always there to provide great service. Overall, we had a great dinner and would love to come back again.
