Kirk aka "Sugar", is an awesome Bartender. He"s skilled, funny, great trivia, and is amazing with blueberries.Yes, fresh blueberries! Fresh fruit too and your feet don't stick to the floor. Bathrooms are clean! Great place to relax and drink and forget you're in Bakersfield!!! Lol

Very calm setting not you're typical bar. You can actually hear someone talk to you. Not loud which is why I enjoy drinking here. Highly recommended if you want to just have a calm night out.

Kirk..one of the BEST bartenders encountered in my 40yrs? of quenching my thirst. Attentive, smart, not arrogant, seemed to be aware of all a good bartender should be. Johnny on the spot. And AJ, his partner behind the bar was as sharp, was smiling her smile the whole time I was there. Thanks for making me feel at home!

This is always a favorite place for a quiet classic drink. Definitely try the sazerac as this may be the only place in town where it's on menu.The vibe here is really chill and staff seems to love what they do.

Darcy the bartender is smoking hot, but that's just part of it. A good selection of bourbon and rye. Small quiet place and not for Yahoo's and would like to keep.it that way. Comfortable for a drinks with a friend/ date.

Waitress was really snobby. She seemed annoyed everytime she came to the table. The old fashion vibe of the bar is really cool but that waitress really takes away from the nice atmosphere. Will not be returning.

Great Service, high quality alcohol selection, with a relaxing and refined atmosphere. Each time I have gone here, the bartenders have suggested something new for me to try that I have not even heard of before, but I have absolutely loved each one. I highly recommend The Old Fashioned Social Drinkery.
