About Us

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.

Absinthe, Sugar Cube
This once illicit booze is said to make patrons hallucinate on account of the wormwood used in the barrel aging process. While it’s hallucinogenic properties were greatly exaggerated, “chasing the green fairy” is quite tasty and a perfectly acceptable form of imbibing.
