I stopped in for a cocktail and a snack at H. Harper Station last Friday while I was on that side of town. I never visited the former occupant, The Depot, but the building is an old train station that has been restored into a really nice space with a lot of checkered tile, exposed brick, and rich mahoganies. Well, I’m not sure if it’s mahogany, but Ron Burgundy would approve.
My experience had a couple of miscues, but I think it’s a bit early to judge that sort of thing, and I liked the feel of the place and bartenders were great. Some of my photos are below. I think H. Harper is definitely worth checking out, if not for the cocktails alone. They are open until 2AM, so it’s definitely a good option for a late night drink.
I started with a bufala negra. This bourbon drink isn’t overly sweet, but refreshing; it’s a solid cocktail.
“relish tray” – the pickled cauliflower were awesome, as were the deviled eggs. A well priced snack at $3.50
