Riverfront Times' Description

Words like strange, esoteric and mystic come to mind as common descriptors when co-owners Matt Thenhaus, Kristin Dennis and Sam Coffey attempt to describe Fortune Teller Bar, which was unearthed and made into their own animal based on the vintage façade yielding the same name. The space has an unclear history of its previous inhabitants and certainly carries on its mysterious vibe in spades with bizarre art, taxidermy, fortune telling and an intoxicating cocktail selection. With local meat and cheese boards, a hefty selection of craft beer and beyond (along with the background to go behind each pour), and house-made goods such as pickle vodka, bitters and pickled eggs, patrons have equal opportunities to try what they know or take a walk on the not-so-mild side. Appropriate for south city hipsters and businesspeople alike, FTB lends a much-welcomed new late night element to the Cherokee Street neighborhood. Stop in to see what your future holds.

    Visitors may partake in a tarot reading while enjoying a basket of pickled eggs in beet, yellow curry and jalapeño flavors, served with Sriracha swirled over spicy mustard. http://bit.ly/14PuDsG

    The "Mason Jar," has a base of pickle-infused vodka that comes from a big ol' container filled with vodka and pickles on a shelf behind the bar. http://bit.ly/19qUAzh

    Even as a Catholic yogini.... I friggin loved it. Fortune was DEAD NUTS ON.

  • Go! Magazine on 10/25/13

    A vibrantly colorful trio of pickled eggs in beet, curry and jalepeño brings succinct flavors, golden yolks and a sharp, superb house-made mustard. (Betha Whitlow)

    Cool place for an already unique hood. Liked the stuffed animals, the fortune teller, and the Stag on draft.
