    First the entrance was amazing. Once we walked inside the atmosphere was quiet and comfortable. The service was remarkable and the drinks were fantastic. We liked everything about the bar and definitely will be coming back.

    The ambiance was perfection. Every detail is breathtaking. I went for the mocktails and was not disappointed- the best i have ever had. Most bars make their mocktails so sweet and not bitter like a cocktail would be- 1854 nailed it! I want to go every day to try a new one ❤️

    Six of us had a ladies night out and enjoyed the 1854 Cocktail Lounge. Several of us opted for delicious Mocktails and the rest had a hard time deciding from the extensive and interesting offerings. Great ambience, service and attention to detail (china plates and silver and a variety of glasses). They only serve appetizers or finger foods. We enjoyed the deviled eggs, dipping bread and shrimp cocktail, which we could share with the group. A fun experience to try again!!

Carter really took car of us with some excellent suggestions. Give this place a try if just want to have a quiet relaxing drink. Best kept secret in Cookeville, TN.

    Our reservation for four was in celebration of our best friend’s birthday. Rachel, the owner, greeted us at the door. Cocktails were well crafted and a delight. We tried the Loomi Sour, Cold Noodle, Mr. Lincoln, 20/20, Bees Knees and another bourbon drink that I can’t recall the name. All were great cocktails. We shared the bread and dip which was also nice. Ambiance is beautiful. We will definitely return and recommend you make a reservation.

    This place is awesome. It’s nice to be able to relax and be able to hold a conversation with someone without having to shout. The music was well curated and not loud. The drinks and charcuterie we got were amazing. Great staff and atmosphere. Overall, it’s the nicest place in Cookeville for sure.

    Loved the overall look of the bar and the fun way to get in. The night we went there was a large group that decided to sing near us which we weren’t appreciative of. Drinks and food were great, not worth 100 dollars in my opinion though. Overall it was a fun night but it’ll be a good drink visit next time to show friends the neat experience.

    Loved our experience. All the staff was kind and knowledgeable about their offers. They went out of the way to accommodate my nut allergy as well. Only thing we wish is it’d be open later so we can go more often, but it’s only because we all get off work late.

    Excellent. I’ve been to enough hidden bars to definitively say that their drinks are the quality you expect from a high end bar. 10/10 for creativity as well. My only suggestion to then would be the lighting and music level. I think they need dimmer, more even lighting throughout and more speakers for a fuller, slightly louder sound throughout as well. Otherwise, you should absolutely go here. The owner is a local and a gem as are the knowledgeable staff. - James

    1854 was the perfect spot for a date night. My partner and I decided to dress up and lean into the vibe of the speakeasy era which is so fun. We enjoyed the appetizers and beverages. I had a couple of the mocktails and both were delicious. The attention to details and textures throughout the offerings and the design was lovely. The staff snd owner were very welcoming and friendly.

    The 1853 speakeasy was a great atmosphere with limited food menu items, probably meant more for a social time and we did have that. In the future, we will probably reserve a later time to enjoy our company and the atmosphere without worrying about a meal after.
