When Captain Foxheart's Bad News Bar & Spirit Lodge first opened, there was an ongoing list on the chalkboard of fellow industry professionals who had broken glasses and were being publicly shamed for doing so.
That list has been replaced by a list of hashtags in colorful chalk. There's #CampartiLife and #NotaSpeakeasy. Below that, two instructions for how to enjoy the bar: #Don'ttouchthelamps and #MyNameisn'tHeyBro.
It's a place known for rules and order, as well as bartenders who enforce said rules without being assholes. They're stern, but they make a mean drink.
Bartender Brandon Ricks isn't an outwardly talkative fellow. He likes to make drinks and get his job done without necessarily listening to you chat about your day. Give him a chance to mix up something special for you, though, and he'll be swift, and the result will be delicious.
Pro tip: Order something with Campari.
