Party Earth Little Miss Whiskey's Golden Dollar Review

The Scene

Marked only by a single light above its door, Little Miss Whiskey's Golden Dollar is a neighborhood haunt catering to anyone in the mood for three-dollar beers, loud rock music, and oceans of vibrant purple décor.

Marked only by a single light above its door, Little Miss Whiskey’s Golden Dollar is a neighborhood haunt catering to anyone in the mood for three-dollar beers, loud rock music, and oceans of vibrant purple décor.

Once inside the main room of this tri-level violet catacomb, a young and unpretentious crowd enjoys everything from tall PBRs to rare microbrews and imports, all served up on a bar encased in glitter.

Velvet wallpaper covers the dimly-lit walls, which are awash in gilded tchotchkes like golden cowboy boots, silkscreen rock concert posters, and a life-size cutout of Elvis.

Hipsters and celebratory groups tuck into alcoves lined with fuchsia brick or, for a more intimate experience, take over a private area where plush velvet furniture shares space with a brightly-lit aluminum Christmas tree.

Hungry patrons luck out Thursday through Saturday when a chef sets up shop on the patio, doling out barbecued eats to guests, who can enjoy their snacks outside or on one of the barber chairs in the smaller downstairs space. On Friday and Saturday nights, DJs choreograph an enthused dance crowd on the upstairs level, where sweaty revelers quench their thirst at a second bar.

Carefully walking the line between kitschy and sexy, Little Miss Whiskey’s is the logical choice for eccentric fun.

Tip from Emma:

It may be sloshing about in an innocent-looking slushie machine behind the bar, but The Awesomeness packs a powerful punch! If you’re hanging out on the back patio, you’ll find that this icy cocktail is the perfect companion on a hot summer night.
