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. 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.

Well it was awesome to book a table, get dressed up, drive down for a date only to show up and the restaurant is CLOSED. We weren’t the only couple either people kept showing up for their “reservation” only to find the place shut down. Trying to find another place to eat was a disaster based on COVID restrictions and without a reservation it meant a minimum hour long wait. The best part was trying to make another reservation on Open Table wasn’t allowed because it said we were currently dining at Bourbon House! Epic fail all around and a miserable date... thanks!

Covid puts a damper on how cool this place can be. We had a nice table in the corner but we were so far away from the bar that it lost its ambiance. Due to the Rona.... not the place itself.

Went to meet a friend while in town. Love the selection apps. Had the deviled eggs, curds, ham and cheese chichorones, wings, bacon wrapped jalapeños. All were excellent. Also had a the bourbon burger. Over all the food was wonderful and decent prices. Drink menu was expansive. Service was excellent as was proper distancing and safety protocols. Pretty cool feel down stairs. Would definitely recommend and will probably be back next time I am in SLC.
