The Root Basement Bar

Welcome To The Neighborhood

Handcrafted seasonal cocktails, craft beer and impressive whiskey choices are not the only things to love about The Root. Step downstairs from The Pine or walk in through the basement door to enjoy the sublime snacks, pub games and big screen TVs. With plenty of room, you’re sure to find friends in our tucked under Five Points bar.

Send 2018 out with a bang!
