Riverfront Times' Description

The drink is the thing at Famous Bar. You may not find the ambitious pre-Prohibition cocktails that everyone and their mother is trying to do these days, but you will find a solid menu of martinis, margs, shots, cocktails and (oh yeah!) kick-ass, multiple-award-winning bloody marys. The Famous Bar is designed for drinking and flirting and laughing and dancing. And by punning on the name of the long-lost department store just a few blocks down the street, the Famous Bar achieves genius.

    The ambiance of this great martini bar is classy but casual. The martini list is great as well as a quality beer menu. On the weekends there is live music an a cover. Great place to enjoy good drinks with friends.

    The Famous Bar is a great little bar, often with great live music. But, it's unique for it's awesome bartenders. It's only on the menu as a shot, but you can get a Pomegranite Martini that is killer
