The sprawling horseshoe bar has the most comfortable stools in town where you can hang comfortably for hours- conversing with locals and tourists alike. There are 2 TVs available and also a small area that can be used for a stage with a PA system. The string lights make things festive and the big open kitchen invites guests to experience the smoky savory scents of our wood smoker and the hustle and bustle of delicious BBQ getting served up that promises to satisfy. Design: The beauty of Mable's is in the details. The large wood and iron chandelier, the taxidermy deer head (given to the owners as a wedding gift) and the pink tiled bathroom full of tchotchkes that will remind you of Grandma's bathroom of the past. Mable's is versatile, we love to mix high and low!

Standout Venue Features: Mable's is all about delicious food and amazing cocktails! Featured on the Food Network, The Discovery Channel and The Travel Channel- and lauded by The New York Times, Village Voice and Saveur mag, Mable's really made an impression. Our Authentic barbecue is slow-smoked in house and served with handmade sides from scratch. The recipes are the owner's own grandmother's after all. Grandma Mable (Nan) was known to cook for days before the holidays- getting up at the crack of dawn to ensure the sauce was cooked long enough, the collards weren't rushed and the beans got just right. And don't get us started on the pies!

Our bar is a mix of beautiful craft beers, Kentucky Bourbon and all the other spirits you could want are hand-picked to create the perfect selection of bar offerings. Our cocktails are hand made- muddled and mixed with precision, care and creativity. Bring us your specialty cocktails or we will create them for you. Who says you only have to drink beer with barbecue? Extra Perks: Mable's prices are all-inclusive of bar, appetizers, entrees and desserts!
