Cane & Grain - Rib Joint & Tap Room
Cane & Grain - First Floor
Cane & Grain - Liars Lounge

~ in the northern quarter ~

It’s been a roller coaster of skate boards, stuffed squirrels, bamboo and, of course, rum, ribs, bourbon and beer but finally Cane and Grain is open with three floors all with a very different feel. If it’s lunch and a beer that you are looking for then grab yourself a seat in our ground floor Rib Joint and get stuck in. For a sophisticated cocktail lovingly created by one of Cane & Grains top bartenders then hit The First Floor Bar. Finally for a zombie fuelled Tiki party hit The Liars Lounge on the third floor.
