In a free-standing brick building on Sahara Avenue west of Valley View Boulevard is Herbs & Rye, a dichotomy of a neighborhood bar with the feel of a watering hole from the past combined with being in the present. When Herbs & Rye offers a classic, it means that the cocktail is prepared the way it was prepared originally, whether from the 19th or 20th century. Names of spirits that are not familiar today are part of the stock and legacy of Herbs & Rye. In the tradition of drinking establishments of the past, Herbs & Rye is only open from 5 p.m. to the early morning and closed on Sunday.
