Artfully Crafting Classic Cocktails

Locally owned and operated, Volstead Bar takes patrons back to the fascinating days of the speakeasy by artfully crafting classic cocktails. Housed in what was the old Dorn Winery and later the Green Door brothel, the Green Door Building is shrouded in Sandusky lore and has seen an array of tenants throughout the years.

Combining these intriguing historical remnants with the speakeasy practices of the aforementioned years, Volstead Bar harkens back to the days of Old Sandusky amidst the New Sandusky renaissance.

Brown Derby

Dickel, Grapefruit Juice, Honey Syrup
During the mid-20th century, Brown Derby restaurants opened all over LA.  This was a golden era of the silver screen and of course imbibing. The Brown Derby cocktail was a centerpiece of the restaurants and popular with both the working man and the Hollywood elite… Perhaps it’s the golden hue of this cocktail that enticed so many as they dreamt of Beverly Hills mansions.
