Dropped in here one night when we were passing by. Once inside the décor is very nice with a British pub feel, with a updated blackened steel update. Definitely a good bar to hang out in with friends. The seating is innovative combining the rail and the tables giving a nice sense of place. The cocktails are the best part,... More

Garlic Truffle Popcorn - 2 orders; Blue cheese bacon stuffed date and roasted fingerling potatoes in duck fat, mount townsend seastack cheese. Everything was incredible! My friend also had the grilled cheese and tomato soup - a favorite of hers.

Oliver's has it all. A well stocked and professionally tended bar is the focal point, and an imaginative kitchen will keep you there. We enjoyed a couple of hand-crafted cocktails as shared plates. We considered it a very satisfying light dinner and a great incentive to come back and work through the rest of the menu.

What a wonderful place to stop and grab a bite and something to sip on. I have absolutely nothing negative to say about this place. The Tomato soup and grilled cheese is crazy good. And the selection of libations is hard to beat. This is a must stop if you are in the Greenwood area.

Our second time at Oliver's Twist ... late afternoon on a sunny, late summer day... cocktails in hand; small plates on the way; friendly waiter; music was pleasing and not too loud. Such a nice place to be. Sublime to mundane: one of us had a Pabst Blue Ribbon, the other an Aperol Spritz. (Could you have a better summer... More

Absolutely love this little gem! I've always been a fan of the Phinney Ridge location and so I was thrilled to see them open up a location in Magnolia Village. The service is great and they're very friendly. The space is small and nice with an intimate atmosphere. The drinks and food are fantastic. Things are not done large-scale but... More

Phinney Ridge location makes it off the beaten path but all the little foodie stickers near the front door tell me that tourists may soon find their way to Oliver's Twist. There's a small but satisfying tapas menu if you want to eat, though their menu and chalkboard point to a wide variety of unique drinks. Skip the s'mores if... More

What a fantastic little place! We experienced 4 very different, but all tasteful and well-made cocktails. I don't think you can really go wrong there. We shared the Garlic Truffled Popcorn and Lemon Basil Sorbet with huckleberries and mint. . . both are an absolute MUST! (Paired surprisingly well together for that salty/sweet mix.) The art featured is changed monthly... More

You can't go wrong on Phinny Ridge, not at all on the tourist trail but very close to ZOO and Green Lake. Oliver's Twist is a great little bar with tapas and outstanding drinks. Hand crafted beverages for the libation connoisseur, with friendly service.

Excellent drinks. Even better tapas. Relaxed, cool atmosphere. Totally awesome staff. If you show up for happy hour it's usually packed with Phinney locals, should say a lot about the place. Great for quality beer, even better for expertly-made, interesting cocktails.
