When we opened The Ideal, we were selling so many of our house recipe Old Fashioneds that we had to put them on tap! Using our local, award-winning Cedar Ridge Bourbon, house-made syrup, maraschino cherry liqueur, and a combination of bitters, The Ideal Old Fashioned is a destination unto its own.

But the Old Fashioned is just the start of a full cocktail program that revolves around classic, straightforward construction. There aren’t any gimmicks here, but there is a seasonal cocktail menu and rotating specials. Only fresh, house-made ingredients are used to compliment – not mask – the spirit, and because we have over 100 spirits to choose from, there’s no limit to what you’ll find yourself sipping at The Ideal!

We also have two revolutionary WineStations, which eliminate waste and allow us to bring you the best wine BY THE GLASS (no need to purchase a whole bottle)!


As an entertainment venue, The Ideal is here to fulfill your before and after dinner plans. Our house-made charcuterie makes an excellent appetizer (and pairs great with wine!) and we feature a rotating selection of mouth-watering desserts in our beautiful showcase. 

For private rentals, we have the capability to compose a charcuterie “grazing table”. If you would like a grazing table included in your entertainment plans, please let us know when you send in your rental inquiry.
