Here's a little riddle for those smart enough to solve and brave enough to try.

A human, a lama, and an ai bot walk into a bar. They each ask the bartender... "Where shall I click to access the secrets?"

The bartender hands each of them a cocktail.

Where is Subourbon?

Downtown Wheaton... yes, the once dry-city of Wheaton. You will be provided specific directions upon a booking confirmation.

Is Subourbon "private"?

Yes and no. Subourbon is a member driven establishment. Non-members can enter as a guest of a member or via a "day pass"  - which is limited based on the day's capacity. We are currently accepting new members. Find additional information regarding membership here.

What is a "day-pass"?

A day-pass allows non-members to visit Subourbon on a particular day, during a particular time slot. These are available on a limited/daily basis based on member bookings and overall capacity.

What is a "spirit keep"?

A "spirit keep" is a means of storing your whisky/spirit-of-choice in a private locker to enjoy at your convenience. We are a a "spirit keep" bar for members. Private lockers are currently at capacity; however, we do have shared lockers available for new members.

Is Subourbon "men-only"?

Not at all. Although "Mad Men" painted a different picture for the whiskey-scene of its day, women enjoy bourbon just as much, if not more, than men. We have many female members/regulars and welcome anyone, regardless of sex (or any race/identity for that matter), with open arms.

Is it "just" whisky and wine?

Not at all. Subourbon is a premium spirit forward cocktail bar – including gin, rum, and other global spirits. There is also a premium wine program.

Do you allow private events?

At this time, we (mostly) book private events for members only. The exception would be on a Sunday or Monday night.

We also allow non-members to book particular rooms and lounges during the day for meetings or special events.

Do you serve food?

Yes. The ownership team are partners at Maypole, which is located above Subourbon. Maypole is a filipino-american restaurant that serves some of the most memorable food you will have in the Western Suburbs. We promise. Both this menu and a separate Subourbon food menu are available for consideration.

Do you give tours?

Yes. We give tours on a daily basis based on interest. Please contact Joe to schedule a tour.

Are you accepting new members?

Yes. We currently have roughly 100 members and anticipate closing membership between 125-150 members. Please inquire via the form below if interested in exploring membership.
