With frosty pewter cups of Mint Juleps, we soaked up the warm ambiance and live music, while sampling delicious items from the newly designed menu. Using fresh and local ingredients with Southern and Cajun flavours, the Revel Room offers quality late night fare; a very refreshing change from typically bad late night bar food. Try the Tres Tacos, wonderfully fresh, the shrimp are to die for with fresh tomatilla salsa and lime crema. The Cornmeal Crusted Chicken Wings are a great start, while The Pulled Pork Sandwich with Memphis style BBQ sauce and house-made coleslaw is a Revel classic. The service was outstanding and everything we ate was absolutely delicious, not to mention the wonderful cocktails. With fresh takes on the classics and southern spirits, the cocktail and wine list are a perfect compliment to the new menu. Must haves include the Makers Mark Mint Juleps and An Englishman in Kentucky with Bourbon, Earl Grey syrup, elderflower cordial, egg white, fresh lemon and bitters.
The Revel Room also offers lunch and weekend brunch featuring live Jazz Saturdays and Sundays from noon-2pm.
