The Haberdasher featured in Garden & Gun

The Haberdasher, a downtown Mobile craft cocktail bar with a top-notch food menu, has become one of the Port City’s go-tos. Here’s what Garden & Gun had to say about it:

“Near the historic Bienville Square in Mobile sits this speakeasy-style bar that was initially a wine shop before it evolved into a cocktail-slinging hot spot. While there are none of the typical speakeasy markers like passwords or a hidden entrance, the ambiance here certainly evokes secrecy. Exposed brick and wood complement the bar, made of hundred-year-old lumber from the building’s remodel. There’s an entire menu section devoted to old-fashioneds (the Haberdasher pours nearly twelve thousand of the classic cocktail each year), but general manager Roy Clark says the Winter Mule has gained ‘a cult-like following.’ Made with vodka or gin, it’s served with lime, a house-made spiced cranberry sauce, and spicy ginger beer. A counter-service kitchen also whips up small bites like Parmesan fries and full-on meals such as  peppercorn-crusted duck breast and cast iron–seared pork chop.”
