During this time of uncertainty, we have made the decision to temporarily close to prioritize the health and safety of our team, guests and community.

We will continue to share updates through social media.

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.
