The Spirit of Downtown Muskegon.

We are a group of partners who care deeply about – and believe in – Downtown Muskegon. We are also passionate about spirits, craft cocktails, and good food.

By definition, 18th Amendment Spirits Co. is a craft distillery. At the same time, our Muskegon location, located at 350 W. Western Ave in the former Savings and Loan Bank, is far more than a distillery or bar. The building houses a vintage Brunswick bar, originally built in Muskegon, where patrons can enjoy exceptionally well-crafted cocktails at reasonable rates. Beyond that we offer entertainment, a restaurant, educational events, and a retail outlet. It is our hope that the former Savings and Loan Bank will become a destination for locals and tourists alike − a place to congregate, imbibe, shop, and enjoy the newly reinvigorated spirit of Downtown Muskegon.

We loved this place. The drinks were awesome, reasonably priced and the menu even told you what kind of glass it came in. Great vibe in an old bank building, high ceilings and an old wooden bar. Our server was terrific and even though it was full she came back to check on us at just the right times. Can’t wait to come back again.

Loved the food and service!! We were a little surprised that they didn’t have any beer, but I really enjoyed my hard cider. We sat outside, it was shaded and we had great service!!….the bees were a bit of a nuisance, but overall I would definitely recommend!!

Heard amazing things about this place but was really underwhelmed. $13 “craft” cocktails that were just fine. Maybe we had an unusual experience, but the distillery down the road was way better in every way

We waited over 20 minutes for drinks and 50+ minutes for food. The manager apologized and took 50% off our bill. That was very nice of him.
The musician was OK, but too loud for dinner. The food we took to go and it was OK.
I don’t think that this is a place we will return to, just wasn’t for us.

I love that you can make a reservation on Open Table! We came for the drinks, which were excellent and found that the food was very very good as well. Small menu but enough to make a meal from. We loved the sliders and the spinach artichoke dip. Next visit we will definitely be trying the pizzas. I think that many people aren’t aware of the excellent distillery and that you can purchase spirits for your at home bar! We bought 3 bottles to enjoy and share.

Since most restaurants are understaffed, I understand our 40 minute-ish wait for our food. It was delicious though. They have beatiful interiors and the table were spaced out nicely. Not too loud inside for conversation. Would still go back.

Drove from Grand Rapids to try based on reviews and uniqueness. It’s a fun atmosphere, the drinks were amazing, but the menu is limited. Food was delicious when we finally got it, but for the capacity and all the servers they had, no reason for it to be as slow as it was. Saw many people get turned away, so make sure to grab a reservation.

Very good service and very good drinks. Everything in the place was picture perfect.

It’s really cool and vintage looking in the place. Great service, everything was social distanced and very clean.

I wish It was more affordable but I’m cheap! 😂

Great service and cocktails! Missed the charcuterie board that used to be on the menu. They use regular salad mix as opposed to romaine, so the greens were wilted but other than that food was ok

Amazing experience. We got engaged the day we went and the staff went above and beyond to help my fiance and Mom set it up. I had no clue it was happening. One of the staff members even sent a video of the proposal to us.

Changed several things on their already limited menu. Used to spend $130 a week there Friday nights but we will be going somewhere else for a while. Drinks there are phenomenal. Thankfully, this has not changed. Service the last two times has been very bad and slow. That’s with 25% capacity at a peak hour on Friday evening.
