Fountain Square’s Thunderbird hasn’t completely shed its former guise as a mid-century live music venue. The old-fashioned black upright piano is the visual epicenter of the room, and the bar is lit like a stage, though Thunderbird is now a Southern-leaning gastropub, where dishes like pickled okra fries, hot chicken biscuits, and a pimento patty melt shine. It's also a gem of a craft cocktail bar; and the drink menu, divided into "Chillers" and "Thrillers," features the noteworthy Escape from New York Sour with bonded bourbon, vanilla, lemon, strawberry, egg white, and red wine. on the drink menu of “Chillers” and “Thrillers,” take a vacation with the Escape from New York Sour, with bonded bourbon, vanilla, lemon, strawberry, egg white, and red wine.
