Naples’ Newest Saloon: New Orleans-inspired Whiskey Park

Whiskey Park  is the popular new Naples restaurant/bar which resembles a Wild West Saloon, and serves New Orleans-accented food.  It's offerings are definitely a step or two up from bar food, and priced just as wallet friendly.

It's  fairly easy to find,  at the southeast corner of Airport-Pulling  Road and Mercantile Avenue, occupying  the  East end of  the same building that houses  Sandy's Cuban Cafe.   Chef/co-owner Chris Prattini, born in New Orleans was the executive chef at Trulucks. Co-owner Larry Hoelzer owned Grumpy's ale House at The Pavilion shopping center. You're in experienced, good hands here.

Enter and let your eyes adjust to the light and decor. It has a tall  ceiling with exposed HVAC ductwork that looks down on a brick wall, a  large horseshoe-shaped bar in one corner, four top tables with whiskey barrels as bases, tall nicely padded  booths,  and faux -weathered table tops.  Chill at the separate lounge,  rack 'em up at either of two pool tables, or watch a game on one of a half dozen large screen TVs.  It's easy to find your fit here.

Order a beer from nearby Naples Beach Brewery, sip a Stella Artois, Guinness,  Ballast Point, Delirium Tremens, or one of many IPAs ; there are dozens on tap. Try a  craft cocktail, shot of vodka,  or choose from  a couple dozen other spirits.  Have a pour of on- tap Jameson Irish whiskey or Jack Daniels.  With a name like Whiskey Park, perhaps a flight of whiskey from over 50 whiskeys  is the ticket!

Service is tops!
