Speakeasy
The Alex is a tribute to prohibition. This cozy speakeasy takes you back to the 1920’s with a touch of modern swank. Enjoy a carefully crafted cocktail menu, bites from our Chef selected shareables or one of our weekly featured dishes. Telephone-themed details pay homage to the bar’s eponym, Alexander Graham Bell. Only accessible by keyless entry using a special code, The Alex is the ideal destination to mosey up to the bar and spend the evening partying like it’s still the prohibition era.

Currently playing: The Blue Dot Jazz Band, every Friday & Saturday 6:30pm - 9:00pm.

    I made a reservation for noon on Mother’s Day.They don’t even serve lunch! And then I couldn’t make a reservation anywhere else’s since they were unable to cancel the open table reservation. They were rude and did not care that they had inconvenienced me and my 85 year old mother in a Walker. It was the worst service I’d ever had.

    This was truly a speakeasy. Low light. Live jazz band. Small and intimate. Awesome

    My favorite speakeasy, it never disappoints. Nice cozy with a jazzy ambience that would impress anyone you take there.

    I had reservations for midnight after leaving a dinner date and entered the establishment at 12:02 am. As I approached the desk, I was greeted with pleasantry; however, when mentioning my reservation for the speakeasy, the lady says I think they’re gone, but another gentleman that works there says, they’re on the roof. The lady made a call and mentioned my name and reservation, she then responded to me saying they were done, they tried reaching out to me, and since they couldn’t get in contact with me, they left. I was flabbergasted by that remark, it didn’t even make sense to me. I checked my call log and email in front of her, and I responded to her that I have nothing from you all. The woman apologized and my date and I left to proceed to a different speakeasy. So that’s why my rating is the way it is for this establishment speakeasy. Maybe one day I’ll have a chance to try this speakeasy, and my rating could be different.
