WHO WE ARE
The Sherwood offers unique craft cocktails and new twists on classic favorites, along with a full service bar offering select beers, wines, and champagne. Providing support to local businesses, The Sherwood will be rotating select food menus from neighboring restaurants, where fresh food will be made and delivered daily.
Created to pay tribute to the nearby Sherwood Forest neighborhood, The Sherwood Lounge is also a nod to the historic Sherwood Forest located in Nottinghamshire, England - famously known as the hideaway home of folk hero Robin Hood. Our mission is to help keep the culture of this special part of the city alive, while preserving key historic structural pieces from the original building like a show-stopping grand fireplace and rustic ceiling trusses from 1939.
Shades of deep blue and rustic neutrals emulate a regal atmosphere but we invite guests to choose their attire based upon what they feel most comfortable in, whether that be board shorts or a suit and tie. Built-in couches and cozy seating options are sure to welcome all customers to a relaxing environment that is accompanied by custom music playlists offering appeal to any generation. The Sherwood also features an antimicrobial copper edge bar, stunning locally milled woodwork, classically cool furnishes, and a beautiful outdoor seating parklet. This experience is sure to excite those seeking a place to host cherished conversation or who desire a comfortable space to kick back and watch the game.
The Sherwood is full of lively character and soul, awaiting your arrival.
