Whiskey Bar

The relaxing atmosphere and dim lit lounge is optimal for the post-work wind-down.  With over 300 whiskeys available, ask and you shall receive. 

If you want to name a bar for one night, 1602 is your place. Popularly known for hosting the greatest Birthday parties, claim the ever-changing chalkboard in the window for a memorable (or not so memorable) birthday. With beverages being aggressively priced, it could be your most affordable birthday yet.

Come sit back, relax and point your finger at one of the 300 Whiskeys and Bourbons offered at the bar with many names. 


1602 has all the creature comforts of a local: mellow lighting, well-loved couches, a chalkboard wall that invites inebriated scrawls and, best of all, a long bar backed by shelves so loaded with whisk(e)y, they’re beginning to buckle.

What you may first notice about 1602 is that you just walked right past it. There’s not much that denotes its presence from the street except for the chalkboard. If you notice the exit sign above the front door reworked to read “1602,” you’ve made it.

1602 is not so much a destination bar as a cozy extension of your living room—assuming your liquor cart holds more than 120 scotches and 80 types of bourbon.
