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.

Negroni

Beefeater Gin, Sweet Vermouth, Campari
Mistakingly created by Florence, Italy native Count Camillo Negroni in 1919, the cocktail came about when he asked his bartender to strengthen his familiar drink, the Americano. Orson Welles once famously said, “The bitters are good for your liver. The gin is bad for you. They balance each other.”
