SRO is not just a bar, it's an experience. Tell the bartender what you like, don't like, sing a song, tell a story, show a picture, etc. Each drink is hand crafted one at a time for each guest. The room can accommodate up to 16 people, and hours can vary.
It’s a magnificent bar that’s so tiny that its letters stand for “Standing Room Only.” Yeah, it’s so small in here, there was apparently no room for menus. It’s the kind of place where you look the bartender in the eye and tell her what kind of thing you’re in the mood for. Tell her you want whiskey-based. Tell her you renounced tequila after the Great Margarita Incident of 2007. Tell her whatever you think you need to tell her.
She’ll ponder your words, your essence and maybe your hair (we don’t know), then pour you out some surprise happy. If it doesn’t suit you, she’ll try again. But first you have to find the joint. To do that, you could either A) go to Oddjob and start pulling on a bookcase in the back, or B) just go around the side of the building and enter from Washburn Alley. Depends on if your night requires bookcase mystique or non-bookcase mystique. Tough call sometimes. -Urban Daddy
