Cocktail Bar
Quite simply, Obstacle No. 1, aims to be your place for craft cocktails in West Michigan. This handsomely appointed lounge will offer a unique combination of Basque influence in both the cocktails & atmosphere. We look forward to helping you cross that first Obstacle, over drinks of course.

    Love everything about this place except the seating arrangements. Every reservation for 2 results in a seat at the bar. There is no opportunity for a nice, romantic meal at a quiet table. Which is a shame.

    I love Obstacle #1. The cocktails, the vibe, the food we can order from Poquito are all amazing. And usually the service is outstanding but last night it really wasn’t. We sat for long periods of time with empty glasses and nobody coming to our table. It wasn’t until probably about 8 PM or so that they switched servers and that particular server returned to our table quite often. That being said it was a wonderful evening and a wonderful way to catch up with a friend from out of state that I don’t see very often.

    This place is an amazing opportunity for top shelf hand crafted cocktails with a very cool kind of speakeasy vibe. Food is from next door small plate restaurant poquito. Love coming in for a drink. Great staff super friendly and helpful!

    Had reservations thinking we were going to have dinner but it's actually more for the drinks? There are a few tables but we were sat at the bar. Ambience is good. Drink menu is extensive. The food menu is small plates which actually come from restaurant next door. We did try the bacon wrapped dates, they were delicious. My husband loved his drink.

    Fantastic apps and drinks. It’s on the pricier side but very worth it. The quality in food, drink, service, and ambience, especially for the area is unmatched.

    Loved it. It's pretty dark in there, but the cocktails are a-maz-ing. Highly recommend Black Math.
