Great outdoor deck and cool jail motif. Menu a tad bit limited if you are with any kids. Definitely worth a try if in town.

I try and come here once a week. This place is awesome. The drinks are real albeit on the high side, the crowd is cool especially Friday and Saturday night. The bartenders are hot and friendly. It's more of a club then a bar after 11PM. Love it!

The drinks were excellent - masterfully prepared, but a bit pricey and service was not very good. Bar, the basement of a former jail, is really cool. Exposed brick and bars with comfortable couches. The outdoor patio was beautiful with lots of seating. Most people were dressed to impress the evening we were there. In fact, I thought at first... More

The Alibi is a bar located inside the Liberty Hotel. The hotel itself was once a jail and it has a different vibe. The drinks are good and there is a great patio with outside seating but you have to get there early as the place gets really busy.

The decor is so much fun and the patio very comfortable! If you just want to have a drink, without loud music, go there late afternoon, at night it gets more like a Night Club...

This place can be packed so you may have to wait in a long line but if not it is a fun place spot for drinks in a cool vintage atmosphere.

Really cool bar inside the old Charles Street Jail and this one is on the ground floor and looks like it used to be a bunch of jail cells. The place is dimly lit and has a lot of seating and gets pretty crowded on weekends. Walls are exposed brick and are lined with famous mug shots of movie stars... More
