The Rib Joint & Tap Room is located on the ground floor of Cane & Grain. With its iconic 80s skate posters, wall of skate deck tiles and limited edition David Bowie skate deck (given pride of place on a wall of its own), the ground floor bar is an homage to the site’s previous owner - seminal skate shop and free-party venue, Cast.
Food is served from 12-10pm, where you can get the best ribs in town, plus some incredible burgers and American sides such as Texas Pit Beans, Burnt Ends, Popcorn Shrimp and Shoestring Fries. The bar is open ‘til 2am every night; warning, the party can get a little raucous.
There’s a comprehensive drinks list with a heavy emphasis on craft beer. There’s a range of taps, bottles and cans, with a main focus on products from USA and a few favourites from the UK and around the world.
Those looking for something a little stronger will be happy with the bar’s large stock of bourbon. The owners actually went over to Tennessee to purchase their very own barrel of 150th Anniversary JD Single Barrel!
The cocktail list is short, but expertly created and mainly concentrates on bourbon and rum!
