The service was a bit slow. It took us 30 minutes to get our first round of drinks. We didn’t order a second round due to this. We will definitely come back for another try.

Williams and Graham called two hours prior to our reservation cancelling due to hot water issues so unfortunately were unable to dine there.
I strongly appreciate them being courteous and calling. We were visiting from out of town so we were pretty bummed we couldn’t try it out. If in Denver again would give it another chance.

Delicious, thoughtfully garnished cocktails and outstanding service in a dark, classic speakeasy bar. Several unique touches and extras made this a one of a kind experience.

Fantastic little find! A definite must see if in the area if you are looking for a delicious and unique blend of infusions. Our bartender Kenny created the perfect drink for me when I had no idea of what I wanted. I only had to tell him things I liked and those I did not and before I knew it I was given a show and the most amazing cocktail. I will definitely visit this place again!

The story book seasonal menu is marketing gold. Very good work, customizing the drinks to match the story was great. Smoking monkey was an absolute joy of an experience, not speaking of how great the drink itself was. Snapchat worthy

Such a great spot! Memorable, different, with delicious small plates and creative, flavorful cocktails. We also loved the staff. Because the venue is so small and intimate, they treat you as a VIP guest. Love everything about this place. (Although I will say, we tend to go on weekdays, when we can make a reservation and not worry about having to wait to get in!)

This is one of my favorite bars in Denver - especially in the colder months when the warm, dark ambiance is especially appealing. The service here is top notch - very personal and attentive without being obsequious. Everyone is very knowledgeable and loves their craft, which I truly appreciate. So whether I want to drink a tried and true classic cocktail or to try something new, the W&G folks never lead me astray. I also feel as if they’ve really upped their food game in recent years. Highly recommend.

Really excellent drinks and food. Service was decent until the end when I asked our server for the bill. After 20 minutes I was so tired of waiting that I asked a passing server for the bill and she brought it immediately.

A nice change from the ordinary - very interesting if limited food options - all tasty but quite rich and filling. The gnocchi were tender and very good - deviled eggs could have been a bit less chilled. Chicken was very good and very unique. Drink selection excellent

Fantastic spot start to finish. We made the plan to go for the drinks and stayed for those AND the wonderful food. The shareable apps were a highlight -- ox tail poutine reinvigorated a group late into the third dayt of eating and drinking our way through Denver. Take the time to make a reservation. Well well worth it. A+

The waiter never checked back in with us. Once our drinks were served, we never saw Tom again until we had to flag him down for the check. Then once we got the check another ten minutes went by before I flagged down another waiter and gave them my card so I could get out of there. Tom had no problem chatting it up with the other employees. It’s not like W&G is cheap to begin with. I expect better service for the price that the drinks cost.

Was our 1st time and had an out of town guest with us. The ombienonce was amazing. Exactly what I had invisoned walking in and met all my expectations and that's where it ended! Our waiter was terrible. His lack of knowledge was dumbfounding considering the establishment he is working in. He could not recommended any drinks and made the experience very lack luster.

This place rocks my socks! The service was great, our waiter amazing and knowledgeable about the place and the cocktails/food. Speaking of the cocktails and food...HOLY mother of God. I wanted to try this whole menu of food and the cocktails too. Never had such a brilliant cocktail (or two) in my life. I don't think you can pick wrong on the food either. Will definitely be going back as soon as I get back home to Denver. Another celebratory evening I think. Ambiance was to die for. Cozy, dark, romantic, definitely a place that made you feel special to be in. Can't wait to be back...

This speakeasy was hands down one of the coolest bars I’ve been to. The bartenders clearly love their jobs and created specialty cocktails for us all night. We especially loved the “whisky forward” drinks. We enjoyed the light appetizers on the menu. The place only holds 65 people max per fire code- so make reservations. This should be on the must do list for Denver.

Make reservations - it'll make your life a lot easier since it is such a small place. It's non-discript corner and when you walk in its a bookshelf and a hostess there only. The bar really is hidden behind a book case and when you enter its dark and tiny, probably seats 30 people tops.

The drinks they make are hands down amazing! Whomever came up with those cocktails combinations did a fantastic job. As well if you are looking for a drink that is something different they will make you a drink for you. For example I wanted something alcohol forward and rum based and they came back with something that was on fire and tasted amazing. Normally you find cocktail places not focus on the taste and just dump a whole bunch of booze together and serve it. It is not the case here at all as it is meticulous in the taste as well.

They have a kitchen as well and a couple of the appies that I had were excellent ie. the marrow and the fries.

I came from Calgary for the NFL game and honestly this place was right up there with my first time experiences in Denver. I'd highly recommend checking them out.
