Artfully Crafting Classic Cocktails

Rent Igloo here!

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 & Speakeasy Pimm's Cup

Pimm’s Cup

Pimm’s No.1, Cucumber, Simple Syrup, Lemon Juice, Ginger Beer
Originating in an oyster bar on Poultry Street in the city of London, the legendary Pimm’s ‘House Cup’ flavored with liqueurs and fruit extracts was created by James Pimm in 1840. The pilgrimage of this flavorful blend continued to another of his establishments called The Old Bailey, which is where he eventually crafted what’s known today as “Pimm’s No. 1 Cup.” The drink embedded itself across the British Empire with the first official Pimm’s Bar opening at the world-famous Wimbledon tennis tournament in 1971.
