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.

Bee’s Knees

Plymouth Gin, Lemon Juice, Honey Syrup
Contrary to popular belief, Prohibition-era cocktails weren’t exactly glamorous, but rather grimy and tasteless. However, out of underground bartender’s quests to liven up less-than-savory bathtub gin, came a fantastic honey and citrus infused concoction coined as the “Bee’s Knees.”
