Mill House made it happen
ian cherry table and an even longer bar that
evokes a European ambience. The drink
menu lists six types of quality whiskey, four
vodkas, three gin and rum offerings and two
tequilas. The wine list drops names that
would impress oenophiles, and you can
order by the bottle or glass. The bartender,
in a white coat and black tie, knows how to
flame the twist in a Manhattan, one of only
three cocktails the bar serves. (A martini and
a Negroni round out the troika.) Soda mixers come from bottles, not a sprayer.
Owners Tim Neill, former bartender
at Crunkleton, and Jesse Gerstel went
upscale by painting over the murals and
adding wainscoting, graciousness called
for by the high-ceilings. Drink prices
range from a $5 beer to an $11 cocktail
or a $14 shot of tequila.
The bar is open every day, 5 p.m. to 2

“I really appreciate the assistance Mill
House provided when I first moved to
town. I wish you all the best.”
