Williams & Graham bartender Chad Michael George shared a screenshot on Facebook of one of the more nonsensical reviews of the LoHi speakeasy, with George wondering "where oh where" the Yelper actually went. Curtis R. shared his feedback that notes "the neighborhood is still rather sketchy," and he discovered a "semi-in-closed patio inside" and also found the main bar to be "brightly lit and filled with kitsch."
Those familiar with the popular Prohibition-era bar know how inaccurate those descriptions are, and the comments on Facebook reflect bemusement. Local bartender Anika Zappe says, "There somewhere that's well lit in Williams and Graham?" and another user remarked, "You have to tell me how to build a 'semi-in-closed patio.' And then explain how it's different from an enclosed one...." Others went on to speculate if Curtis R. was actually at a different establishment, like Lost Lake Lounge.
