Vibe: If you haven’t been to The Rookery, you’re definitely missing out. Not only is their patio amazing, but the horseshoe bar is a sight to see. The rookery definitely has the space you want for big groups, but doesn’t sacrifice the intimacy some big groups may be looking for. The bar service/table service rule is pretty easy to understand and follow. (There’s no table service until after 7 on weekdays.) The patio is something out of a ladies who lunch catalog, complete with whimsically placed shrubs. This is a great hangout/date spot/meeting place for all age groups in ‘wick. The playlists changes to suit the clientele, so you can be carried off to Birdland one minute and swinging from the Chandelier the next.
Boozeworthiness: Any place that will give you a bottle of wine for 15 dollars is somewhere I’d like to be more often. The wine was way better than I expected, and the food was great. Also, there’s like eight entire hours of happy. 🙌 How can you not love that?! The only drawback was the speed of the food, but that’s for a different blog to review.
