When Andrew and Justin got together there always just seemed to be a constant flow of good cocktails, music, and comfort food. Having worked at some of the city's best bars (Columbia Room, Silver Lyan, Green Zone) they’re stoked to bring a cozy, late-night cocktail den with a touch of mischief to the neighborhood.

When talking about their favorite spaces, there was always the refrain of “that place is
trouble”, referring to how hard it could be to leave your favorite bar. This space starts with that aspiration, to live at the intersection of high energy and low-key comfort with good food and drinks; a place you just don’t want to leave that appeals to the trouble birds among us.


The drink menu revolves around a slate of rotating seasonal and irreverent themes, large format offerings for the table, boilermakers, frozen drinks intended to be mixed & matched along with a list of riffs on familiar classics. The food menu follows with shareable dips, sandwiches, and half-smokes featuring untraditional accoutrement. Trouble Bird is your punk rock grandma’s living room turned cocktail-fueled house party.
