Even though Butchers & Barbers has been getting a lot of love as the Houston Brothers’ first restaurant venture, the cocktail program by Beverage Director Joseph Swifka shouldn’t be overlooked. The Old Grandad, with cinnamon-infused sweet vermouth, blended scotch, and maple syrup, reflects the restaurant’s masculine, New American feel and is just downright delicious.

Butchers and Barbers
Here’s Butchers & Barbers
Like most Houston brothers productions (No Vacancy is behind it, Dirty Laundry is more or less below it), this is an old-timey spot that looks like it’s always been here. Only this time, the lightbulbs are on meat hooks, ancient straight razors are framed art, and butcher scales hang over the bar.
