Lowry gets a new neighborhood spot today with the opening of the Officers Club — an American fare- and Old Fashioned-focused bar and restaurant from the team behind Lowry Beer Garden.

The Officers Club was inspired by the “mid-century heyday” of military base officers club, and the menu features high-end takes on familiar dishes like New England cheddar biscuits ($7), avocado toast ($10), NY deli chive-smoked salmon dip ($15) and an ahi tuna poke tower ($16).

The cocktail menu is all about the Old Fashioned, with a selection of “old school” and “new school” variations. There’s a also a selection of other cocktails, wine and beer.

If you’re wondering why the Old Fashioned thing sounds familiar, it’s because Wally’s Wisconsin Tavern has a thing for them too.

“With Officers Club, we hope to meet the Lowry neighborhood’s need for an upscale dining experience in a sophisticated atmosphere,” owner Joe Vostrejs said in a press release. “You’ll feel at home in your neighborhood, but still get to enjoy the type of high-quality food and cocktails not currently available in the area.”
