Interested in a Longer Happy Hour?

If you are a person who loves to drink, you may be wanting more booze for a longer time. Maybe happy-hour is just too short? We know what you are thinking, “I only get one hour to drink for a cheap buck?” Don’t worry. We got you covered. We offer memberships.


Do those other “bars near me” have bar memberships attached to them? At The Basement, we offer two special memberships that give our guests access to an extended hour of happiness. These hours vary on which membership you choose. The two memberships are the silver and the gold membership. They have all the perks you could possibly want in a bar membership. Each time you visit you will be welcomed with two free draft pours, completely on us! No strings attached. The memberships both offer a named engraved 16-ounce pint glass that you can take home and enjoy daily. Also, let us not forget the ten percent off all our merchandise.  Here is the breakdown of each:
