Ebeling started bartending at the now-defunct Petra Cafe as soon as she was old enough to drink and went on to take over operations there through August 2011. Her decision to move the bar to Cherokee Street with co-owner Steve Lickenbrock followed the desire to, "do something a bit different." The main theme for her new idea? A vintage cocktail bar.

"We're a neighborhood bar that's a throwback to Cherokee in its heyday," says Ebeling. "...Cherokee was really popping in the '40s and '50s, which is also the heyday of the cocktail."

The combination of these two concepts spawned the birth of her bar. She came across the name "Livery Company" while reading up on apothecaries. Y'see, livery companies, or trade associations in the City of London, regulated distilleries as well as wine and beer making in the 1600s.

Is the cocktail list super secret for regulars only? I went in last night and was told there wasn't one and that they were working on a new seasonal menu.

Everyone was nice. And I love a bar with Buffalo Trace bourbon. But I would think a cocktail place would at least have a few cocktails to offer, even if between seasons.
