Comstock Saloon sits on some old foundations; it was formerly a real Western saloon, and one that still includes the pisser trough from a different century.

When Jonny Raglin and Jeff Hollinger diverged from the seven-ingredient cocktail formula in 2010, they helped droves rediscover the simple joys of Southsides and the west-coast classic Pisco Punch.
