My friend and I were looking for a day drink during pandemic time and we went to this place! I had no idea where we were going. We were just walking down the street and then my friend points ahead and says, where do you wanna sit? Now, in social distancing time, Foundation has set up shop on the street. There's a group of socially distant metal tables with a menu plaque on top that designates the seating area. We sat down and one of the bar attendants immediately came over to greet us. He was wearing a mask and speaking from an appropriate distance. Their COVID rules are parties of up to 4 only, wear a mask until you get your drinks and put them back on when you're done and don't mingle with other parties. There's a time limit on the tables too. The menu is online only now and there's a QR code where you can find it. They also have a menu board where you can find their beers on tap. I perused the menu. It's very cool but these aren't the typical drinks you find at the bar. They seem to feature a lot of bourbon drinks. The good thing is that the bar attendants are right there to answer questions and they were very nice and open. They checked on us multiple times as I took my time with the menu, before finally settling on the drink. Most of the drinks were 12 bucks, which I don't think is bad for specialty cocktails. The presentation was so nice. I wish I took a picture. The ice was great, these sturdy ice blocks. Presentation is part of the experience. I got the Buzz's Girlfriend which was sweet and smooth, not overly sweet. I felt like it was the perfect amount for sipping and chilling. Being on the street, it was easy to people watch and because downtown is quieter now, it was still easy to talk. I think it will be nice to go here even by yourself because it felt very chill, like a coffee shop. I think this will be a cool place to hang for another few weeks, just make sure to bundle up when it gets colder. Overall, I felt very comfortable. The staff were great, they thanked us a lot and made sure we were well taken care of. Will definitely return next time I'm in the area and try something new. There's a lot of choices on the menu!

Lol the sign out front said something along the lines of "we don't get yelp reviews". I don't know why it said it but I decided I would write one. We got a few signature drinks: east side Ricky and the Charleston sour. I had two other drinks, one was lime based and the other is orange juice based. Unfortunately, I don't remember the names but they change the menu often. When you walk in it is a small room with brick walls. Everyone is super nice and they were constantly busy while we were there.
