A WEST TOWN RESTAURANT, BAR AND GATHERING PLACE  

CELEBRATING THE CRAFT OF FOOD, DRINK AND HOSPITALITY

 

Halloween at The Dawson

October 31st, from 7pm-10pm, the most peculiar palm reader will tell you your fortune but only when you responsibly imbibe our esoteric cocktail. This cocktail holds the key to the fortune tellers 3rd eye which opens to bring you your fortune.

On Halloween, we invite you to order a specialty Hendrick's cocktail. This potion will reserve you a spot in line giving you a chance to look into your future. The Devil's Den will be the most unusual scene allowing you to detach from the world and see what lies ahead. 

 

Birthday Bourbon Bash

November 5th, we are teaming up with Old Forester Bourbon from 6pm-9pm to celebrate our one year anniversary! 

A typical bottle of Old Forester Bourbon contains whiskey from a number of different years. However, their Birthday Bourbon is actually vintage-dated, like a bottle of fine wine. 
In fact, the bourbon is all from one specific day of production, making this beverage impossible to duplicate. 

Old Forester is the only bourbon to be produced before, during and after Prohibition, but the Birthday Bourbon series didn't begin 
until 2002. The product celebrates the birthday 
of the dearly departed George Garvin Brown, the founder of Old Forester.

In honor of this great bourbon and our anniversary, we invite you to join us for bourbon, snacks and sweets.

Also available that evening, is an à la carte menu featuring Old Forester cocktails, 
a celebratory entrée and dessert.
