Dot Dot Dot, the intimate speakeasy-style bar tucked away in the Park Road Shopping Center’s Backlot, debuted its first line of house cocktails when it opened in July.

The drink menu, which are split straight down the middle between classics like a Sidecar and Old Fashioned and house cocktails like a Queen City Swizzle and No Last Call, is being expanded to include drinks for the fall and winter seasons.

This week, the members-only bar is rolling out a handful of new additions to the menu.

Co-Owner and Mixologist Stefan Huebner

Each new cocktail pays homage to the upcoming seasons while continuing hovering in the same $12-$14 price range and beginning with the same bases (whiskey, bourbon, vodka, etc.) as the cocktails they’re joining.

And they’re basically fall in a glass.

Continental Divide, made with Stranahan’s Whiskey, Byrrh Grand Quinquina and Amaro Montenegro and served up. $14

Good to Be King, made with Early Times 354 bourbon, Bonal Gentian Quina, a house blend sweet vermouth and black walnut bitters and served up. $13

The Hidalgo, made with Sailor Jerry’s, orange curaçao, lime juice, grilled pineapple, lemon bitters and nutmeg. $12

Lily Wants a Pony, made with Tito’s vodka, riesling, rosemary and fresh lime juice and served over ice. $13

The drink is actually named after Huebner’s daughter, Lily

Praying Mantis, made with green Chartreuse, green crème de menthe, white crème de cacao and half and half. $13

Seasons Long Gone, made with Ansac VS cognac, pear nectar, ginger liqueur, elderflower liqueur and lemon bitters. $14

Vieux Carre, made with Old Overholt Rye, Courvoisier VS, Bénédictine, pimento and Peychaud’s Bitters. $14

Weekend Lover, made with Maker’s Mark, apple cider, maple syrup, cinnamon, nutmeg, clove and lemon and served over ice. $14

The rest of the drink menu will remain the same, complete with the classics.

You can drink your way through it once you’re a member ($10/year, sign up here) and dressed for the occasion (see the dress code here).
