Thompson and Twain provides a glimpse back in time:

modern day hospitality meets the ambiance experienced in a Western frontier town.
The setting, Decor and menu harken back to a dangerous and rough time in America’s history. Join us in search of fortune and adventure.

Dress Code

Time period appropriate clothing or formal wear is not required but encouraged. Please leave your revolvers, carbines and blades at the door. This is a civilized saloon.


While the Western frontier was defined by roughnecks, ruffians and general lawlessness, guests in Thompson and Twain are expected to maintain decorum and etiquette.

Inebriation, barfights, unwelcome advances, hollering, pistol duels, bounty hunting, moonshining, catcalling, cheating at cards, liar’s dice, and tobacco chewing are strictly prohibited.

21+ Only

While the west was known for disorder and rebellion, we abide by the local governance and require that all patrons be a minimum of 21 years of age.


Our main focus is precise cocktail service at Thompson and Twain! For food, beer and wine we are happy to direct you to our neighboring establishments, Crush & Brew and Espadín. Our cocktail menu leans heavily towards time appropriate spirits – Rye and Bourbon Whiskey along with Gin, but we offer the full range of familiar spirits.

We pride ourselves on custom cocktail craftsmanship and will make a drink tailored to your preference based on a few questions and your direction.


Reservations are available on a limited basis on Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings for parties of up to 8 from 5-8pm on a first come, first served basis. Availability will show 7 days in advance of the date of your visit. Guests can book directly through the Book Now button at the top of the page. Sorry folks, but there were no phones in the 1800s and there ain’t any now in our bar to accept requests.
