The Berry and Rye, Omaha’s inspired pre-prohibition era cocktail room, is now open and will be launching their complete craft cocktail menu at their Grand Opening weekend July 12th and 13th. Located behind the House of Loom, The Berry and Rye have a seating-only policy therefore reservations are highly recommended.

Defined as: “Much like a restaurant, we seat our patrons with a host. Not to be confused with VIP or exclusive access, we just want to ensure consistency in service, consistency in atmosphere and consistency in cocktails. We encourage an atmosphere where people come with an open mind, enjoy our laid back atmosphere and slowly sip and savor drinks over good conversation.”

The Berry and Rye is located at 1105 Howard Street and are open for service from 5:00 p.m. to 2:00a.m. Monday through Sunday. For more information, visit
