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.

Volstead Bar Painkiller Cocktail


Pusser’s Rum, Pineapple Juice, Cream of Coconut, Orange Juice
As any sailor whose ventured through the West Indies can attest, Charles Tobias and Daphne Henderson of the Soggy Dollar Bar perfected this rum-based cocktail. The creation of a flippant bet between a bartender and a boater on the island of Jost Van Dyke in the BVI’s, the infamous Pusser’s Painkiller does exactly what it decrees.

Absinthe rinse, London Dry Gin, Lemon Juice, Simple Syrup, Champagne
The drink was created in 1915 at the New York Bar in Paris-later Harry’s New York Bar-by barman Harry MacElhone. The combination was said to have such a kick that it felt like being shelled with the powerful French 75mm field gun, also called a “75 Cocktail”, or “Soixante Quinze” in French.
