Review By Camper English on 2014-01-18

Though the bar was named for a quote from Robert Plant, this is far from a rock-and-roll joint. Rather, Ourselves Alone is like a tiny gentlemen's club, appointed in green upholstered salon chairs that surround candlelit tables.

There are no cigar-smoking counts swilling brandy from snifters after dinner here, but guests do get the butler treatment: you are greeted at the door and escorted to a seat, your coat is stored in a wardrobe, and you are served a welcome cocktail.

After you are acclimated, you can negotiate a cocktail with your server (there is no drink menu), and come to an agreement on what will fit your mood. The drink will likely be a classic or vintage cocktail of some sort, perhaps enlivened with local products like aquavit, and served on a large cube of ice. (The bar doesn't own an ice machine- everything is carved from blocks). The vintage cash machine and suited bartender only add to its Old Worlde charm. The experience is so genteel and pleasant that you will probably wish the name indicated that you and your friends really could have the bar alone all to yourselves.
