Q) How old do you have to be to get into Whiskey River?
A) According to Georgia State Law, you must be at least 18 years old with a VALID PICTURE ID in order to enter Whiskey River. If you're under 21, your ID will be taken at the door and held there until you leave. You will be given a wrist band to identify you as being under 21 years of age, and you must have that wrist band in place in order for you to get your ID back when you leave. Oh, and we can tell if you've stretched it over your hand to take it off and put it back on, so don't even try it.
Q) I forgot to get my ID when I left Whiskey River. How can I get it back?
A) Whiskey River's office hours are Wednesday through Saturday, 10am until 5pm. Or you can come in during regular operating hours as well.
Q) I lost my <item> at Whiskey River the other night. How can I get it back?
A) If items are found and turned into us, we keep all important items (i.e. cell phones, wallets, etc) locked in our office until they are claimed. Jackets, sweaters, and other clothing items are kept locked in the box office. See the business hours in the above answer.
Q) The bartender asked me for my ID when I ordered a drink. What gives? Don't they check ID's at the door?
A) A good bartender knows that it's THEIR responsibility to make sure you're of legal drinking age before they serve you alcohol.....not the door person. Our bartenders are trained and experienced, so hiding your wrist band, or saying "I left my ID in the car" won't cut it. You should have your ID on you at all times. If the bartender asks to see your ID, show it to them. They're not hassling you, they're just doing their job.
Q) It's my birthday!! Do I get a drink for free?
A) Happy birthday! No.
Q) We're having a huge night out. Can we reserve some tables for our group?
A) Sure! If you have a group of 10 people or more, we'll be happy to reserve you some tables. You'll need to call us in advance before we open the doors so that we can mark your tables. Please remember that we don't allow food items to be brought into the club (i.e. birthday cakes, cupcakes, etc) but balloons and party favors are welcome.
Q) I stood at the crowded bar for 5 minutes and the bartender didn't even notice I was there! What gives?
A) Well, if the bar was "crowded", then perhaps you should have a little more patience and allow them to get around to you. The bartender only has 2 hands and on a busy night they're working as fast as they can to keep up with everybody. They work in a methodic way, which means they work in a circle around the bar. They'll get to you in order.
