I proposed to my fiancée in the very patio where we shared our first kiss, capturing the moment with the help of a photographer. The bar staff and all employees present that evening played a significant role in ensuring everything went smoothly, even hooking up the photographer with her own hidden table, chair, and drink, contributing to the magic of the occasion. We're deeply grateful for their support and look forward to many more special moments and shared drinks here in the years to come!

Loved our evening at Garden Bar. Was happy that Aspen was our bartender and server. She is a joy and treats us special. The drinks, food and setting were terrific. 3 of us were repeat customers. We were happy to introduce 3 friends to Garden Bar. We had a special time! Thank You for the great service and experience this season. Time for me to head back to the Neskowin on the Oregon Coast. See you in January 2024. My best, Christi Clark

Honestly, the experience was everything we hoped for and more. “Girls night out” I will book the front porch next time. How lovely!!! We know it was busy. And trying to accommodate everyone in the rain with seating limitations was stressful. Wrangling us gals who were not following seating rules was very kind and extremely professional. Drinks were amazing!!! Did NOT disappoint. As a gal trying to be mostly vegan …I strayed & wasn’t guilty. This is a special place. The historical details & stories makes it so very special. Things we thought could be improved? Not sure if they can but… More umbrellas outside. Stationary & mobile ones due to sun & rain. 1st drink could have been swifter served w/faster non-stop water. I’m guessing the location is unable to allow front yard seating. But, if possible, that would be lovely. Lattice pavers w/artificial grass or rock/sand? With high tops? Just a thought. That’s expansion & I know that’s stressful. Keeping it intimate is paramount. But, it would allow for “overflow” for those waiting to be seated or get an Uber yo leave with cocktail in hand. Regardless, I will recommend this experience to everyone. Thank you! Amy Gould
Business Response:
Thanks for the great thoughts! Funnily enough, we're going in front of the city this Fall to see if we could get approved for some front yard seating and some extended opening hours... :). Look forward to having you w/ us again sometime!

Our bespoke cocktail experience was supposed to last 90 minutes. The second round of drinks did not arrive until 50 minutes in, at which time we told our server that we had dinner reservations in an hour and she assured us we would be finished before then. Another 45 minutes passed, at which time we had to go tell the bartender we needed to leave. The final drinks were brought out with 1-2 minutes to chug them before we had to leave for our dinner. It’s a shame because it would have been a lovely experience aside from the service.
