We decided to take one of our girlfriends to Shorties for her birthday, didn’t know what we were expecting. As we approached the restaurant bar, it looked simple but as you walked inside, you were wowed by the space.

The staff were helpful and amazing. Cocktails, was holy moly awesome and even dressed beautifully. The best cocktails I’ve had in a long time. Not only did the cocktails topped my list but the food was very so pretty and delicious.

I was totally amazed by the food, cocktail, staff and the place. Definitely coming back!! The menu items was fun and interesting, not a lot of choice but good selection. Undiscovered treat!!!

Been wanting to check out Shorties and tonight was the night! Wow, what a great bar. Steve was so friendly and let me try 2 wines so I could pick for my palette.🍷 Great ambience, would be rockin' on a Friday night so will have to come back and try the delicious looking food, locally sourced and organic where possible.
