West Main Crafting Co. is a nineteenth century-inspired craft cocktail bar located in downtown Lexington, KY.  We craft our own sodas, syrups, cordials, tonics, tinctures, infusions, perfumes, and bitters, in order to provide the most exciting drinking experience possible, whether you’re enjoying authentic classics or inventive new cocktails.  We release two cocktail menus (“Volumes”) each year, each themed after one of our many interests and fandoms.  

When it comes to our “mission,” our sole purpose is to share all the arcana and wonderful, colorful history of our craft in an authentic, approachable way.  Our cocktail menus, food menus, classes, specialty dinners, and flight features are ways to enrich our lives and the lives of people around us.

Backing up our cocktail program is our seasonal food menu: a thoughtful, Kentucky Proud exploration of fresh and regional produce, with shareable plates as well as entrees and daily specials. After 10:30pm on weekend nights we feature a Late Night Menu of lifesaving, breakfast-inspired food.  We also feature a monthly dessert menu and a happy hour menu of decadently made bar snacks.  

We are proud to host a series of cocktail and spirit classes throughout the year, exploring our current obsessions over spirits and food, and a number of pairing dinners that explore themes from our cocktail menu and take advantage of other interests and opportunities.

As much as we love enthusiasts of all ages, we are strictly a 21+ venue, and can accommodate no minors, toddlers or infants.

Street parking is available nearby on Short St and the surrounding blocks. The library garage is located at 140 E Main, and the LFC garage is at 230 W Main. Don’t drink and drive.
