Maybe the first thing you need to know about Bar Stache is that if not for us, you probably won’t be able to find it.
This is a 1920s speakeasy-style bar, so the entrance is hidden down a quiet side street. The sign out front? Yeah, it's for the does-not-exist Himmie Health Club.
And no, you don’t need a code word.
Just be prepared, because this place is a bit of a time machine. Replacing the live music venue Green Room (pour one out for the homies), the entire space has been revamped with an upstairs library and more antiques than grandma’s sitting room (which was sexier than we remember, apparently).
On special nights, Aurora Natrix burlesque strips to her pasties, and the Bobby Lee Rogers Jazz Trio makes it feel all Roaring Twenties up in here.
As you’re heading to the bar for a WGA Sour, aka the world's greatest Amaretto Sour, tap into your inner Prohibition gangster and pretend you’ve been sent by Nucky Thompson.
Rumor is he loved burlesque, too.
