Dimly lit, with a number of spots to perch, from the inviting cast pewter bar to the long communal table, and with a roster of expertly prepared classic cocktails and house-made libations, Barrel House knows how to handle its liquor. You can’t go wrong with the “Bartender’s Choice,” a custom cocktail made just for you.
