Take a Photo Tour of the New Paydirt Bar Inside the Zipper

Highlights include a 1930s telephone booth (that actual works) and 50-foot bar.

Brought to you by the guys behind Old Gold, Paydirt Bar opened on NE Sandy and 28th yesterday with a focus on whiskey and get this, Fernet-Branca on tap. We wanted to take photos at noon, yesterday, but the Paydirt crew were too busy connecting the telephone cables from their 1930s telephone to a Batman phone behind the bar. We understood: Opening a bar that allows guests to order drinks by vintage rotary phone sounds complicated.

But today, we reveal the interior of Paydirt, replete with leather booths, a 50-foot bar of reclaimed wood, and yes, a telephone booth for placing orders of champagne and buckets of Miller High Life.

Paydirt is now open daily beginning at 4pm.
