A variety of cocktails at the Undercroft in Bentonville Arkansas


Bentonville, AR: Undercroft
Located behind a nondescript door marked “coatroom,” below the stunning restored church digs of the Preacher’s Son restaurant is Undercroft. This dark and sleek basement bar features ancestral cocktails — early 19th-century style cocktails like the Old Fashioned and stiffer libations like the Manhattan. If you aren’t dining in the restaurant, you can enter from the street through a side archway marked “bar.”
