Signature Drink: Our cocktail menu changes seasonally and it’s full of classics. I’d say the Hurricane is one of the most popular and we do frozen versions, too.
TrunkSpace: How would you categorize the establishment?
Ogie’s is a restaurant and bar with great outdoor patio seating.
TrunkSpace: Can you describe the décor in three words or less?
TrunkSpace: What makes the place unique? Why should we drink there?
The concept of Ogie’s is to pay homage to a simpler time where smart phones and TV didn’t rule the day. It’s a swanky mid-century style cocktail bar inside. The kitchen is a trailer/mobile home that serves food out of it’s window, food truck style. When your state license plate is called, your food is ready. There are vintage trailers you can sit in front of on the patio, as well as a fire pit. We will be launching our new outdoor bar this summer, Twinkie’s Tiki Trailer, serving up traditional tiki cocktails.
TrunkSpace: Do you serve food, and if so, what should we order our next time in?
We do! Comfort food all the way. The Rhody fried chicken sandwich, encrusted in Cool Ranch Doritos is delicious. We’re famous for our tots!
TrunkSpace: Have there been any notable patrons who have come through your doors over the years that we everyday patrons can brag that we’ve inadvertently drank in the presence of?
Unlike The Duck & Bunny, our sister restaurant which has seen its share of celebs, Ogie’s is more of a local, west side watering hole. The Governor and Mayor have held events and dined with us, but I think that just confirms what a local spot it is.
TrunkSpace: Craziest thing that has ever happened there that people still talk about to this day? Go!
What? At Ogie’s? Nothing crazy ever happens at Ogie’s. 😉
TrunkSpace: And finally, what is a fun fact about the establishment that could further enhance the experience of customers the next time they come through those doors and pull up a stool?
Ogie’s is decorated with modern art adorning the walls with a twist. (Ogie, our feline CEO, has replaced the original faces in the artwork.) Ogie, Granny Boo, Twinkie and JuneBug – our feline friends – are all mentioned in different ways throughout the establishment.
