A cozy, intimate setting tucked away on Historic 3rd Street. Libations and small plates.
Bitter & Pour
Now that we’re friends, here’s a little more about us.
Bitter & Pour is the lovechild of four nice guys with stardust in their eyes. A subterranean hideaway housed in the Merchant Exchange building on Historic 3rd Street where only the finest spirits and elixirs are served to Rochester’s hippest drinkers. In the pursuit of excellence, we created a tiny altar that pays tribute to everything we’ve always wanted. A cozy and stylish atmosphere, detail-obsessive cocktails, impeccable wine, craft beers, and thoughtfully crafted food.

We’re located in the heart of downtown Rochester on Historic 3rd Street SW. Housed in the lower level of Merchant Exchange building, you’ll have to search a bit to find our true whereabouts as we are not an “open book”. There’s plenty of street parking nearby if you plan on driving. Please note we are a cash-free establishment and unable to accommodate reservations at this time.
