The Best Dive Bar in SoNo!
Out with the new and IN with the old! Our House is a new dive bar in the heart of SoNo that says goodbye to the pretentious by reintroducing the fun environment of bars past.
Engineered by veteran bartender and restauranteur Isaac “Pat” Camora, Our House delivers a no-nonsense environment that is welcoming to all. Located on historic South Norwalk's Washington Street, Our House sits center stage to the hustle & bustle of this quaint and busy SoNo Street. The exposed brick walls and cascading string lights remind you of something out of San Francisco back alley while the friendly atmosphere will make you feel right at home!
The bar boasts fun from every angle. With everything from dart boards to retro arcade games and a fresh pool table, just to name a few, there is something for everyone. The back bar is filled with lights, bottles, gizmos and gadgets that acts like a living canvas and focal point to this cool bar. Behind the bar is the “wheel of fortune,” a numbered wheel that reflects great drink specials for a short period after each spin. The bar staff spins the wheel every half an hour and people cheer with excitement waiting to see the next drink special. This is definitely not your average watering hole.
When it comes to the beverage program at Our House: there really isn’t one. Canned beer, call drinks and their motto of “no martinis” ...this is a dive bar for the masses. They do have a small five drink cocktail menu which is tongue-in-cheek to say the least. The “Havana Oh Na Na” is a rum punch with both white and spiced rums along with pineapple, cranberry and orange juice. The “Shameless Shandy” is a mix of pub beer, grapefruit and lemon/lime soda. The “Movie Star” named for the voluptuous beauty Ginger from Gilligan's Island is made with Valor American whiskey (made in Fairfield), ginger beer and topped with a luxardo cherry… De-lish!
When it comes to food, Our House has partnered up with Urban Taqo Company and they are making some seriously noteworthy eats. A global taco concept with flavors from all over the map. Some of their taco creations include:
VooDoo Child: Gumbo shrimp, andouille, tomato, peppers & onion, seasoned rice
Born In East La: Dos Equis braised chicken, pico de gallo, radish, pickled jalapeno, cilantro-lime crema
Jenny From The Block: Roasted pork, chicharron, avocado, black bean salad

Two floors of fun and great energy keep Our House as the flagship new concept in SoNo. Don't miss out on this great bar and eatery, stop in and meet the family tonight!
