At the end of March, Timber Steakhouse announced that it planned to abandon the steakhouse concept and rebrand itself as a lavish bourbon bar with light fare. After a short renovation, Timber has done what it promised, renaming itself Timber Bourbon Bar and Lounge and unveiling a new indoor and outdoor spot that looks perfect for a drink or two.
Shared on Facebook by Timber Lounge, their revamped interior space has done away with the standard dining tables and replaced them with comfortable chairs and comfy sofas. Beyond the decor, the menu has also changed. Most of the standard signature cocktails that were on the Timber Steakhouse menu remain at the Timber Lounge. It’s not just cocktails either, Timber Lounge offers beer and LOTS of wine on their drink menu.
There is also food. Gone are the high-end steak options and in its place, more shareable plates. Some of the appetizers featured include mini corn dogs, popcorn shrimp, and chicken wings. There are also a few things on the menu that you won’t find in many other places. These include Maine lobster rangoons, kalamata olive tapenade, and a sausage sampler.
Timber has also reopened their “backyard”, an almost secret oasis behind the hidden bourbon bar down the alley.
