This fifth ward sports bar focuses on whiskey and pizza, and offers whiskey cocktails and flights. Non-brown spirits drinkers have a single "guest cocktail," they can order, like the gin-based Clover Club. There's also a beer list that emphasizes Midwest breweries. Pies are made with two thin crusts stacked on top of each other, and toppings are generally meaty. Desserts tend toward the nostalgic, with s'mores and nutella cake on the menu. Despite being a sports bar, Old Fifth is chill on the weekends, and a DJ plays Outkast, Michael Jackson, Lauryn Hill and others.
