Signature Drink - Classic Whiskey Sour

Sure, The Trestle Inn has some serious history—the place has been serving food and drinks for a century—but this hot spot is definitely not gathering any dust. Don your best go-go boots and get ready to dance at this whiskey go-go bar where it’s the free-spirited 60s and 70s all over again. Feeling shy? Just watch the dancers shimmy and shake their way into your heart. Private events are welcomed with open arms.
