This New Bar is Top Shelf
They even needed a ladder. Sneak away to a new bar with speakeasy vibes in the old Pinehurst Theatre Building: Augie’s Room. Since opening Lisi Italian in 2019, Jim and Mickey Reale have stayed busy filling their dining rooms and expanding with Lisi Market. “We wanted to create something a little different,” says Jim. Family means a lot to the Reales, so Augie’s Room is named for Jim’s dad.
“Sometimes we’d have an hour wait time, and I didn’t have anywhere for people to sit and have a drink on a busy night while they wait for a table. So I leased more space for this,” says Jim. “We couldn’t do it without our amazing staff.”
Inside you’ll find a large selection of spirits, a cocktail list and small bites like charcuterie or lobster deviled eggs. But like Lisi, the menu is subject to fluctuate periodically. You can grab a drink Monday through Saturday from 2-10 p.m.
