to Barnett's Public House!

A true Texas public house in the heart of downtown Waco specializing in rare whiskey, cocktails, and excellent food. Barnett's Public House strives to offer the best product in a comfortable atmosphere everyone can call home.

As Waco grows and the city improves the goal of Barnett’s Public House is to be a part of serving the community and those who come to visit this charming town. Walking through the front door you will immediately be greeted by the friendly staff as they make you feel welcome and part of the Barnett’s family. Barnett’s is continually challenging the staff to be better each day with knowledge and product, this desire has led to building one of the largest and best whiskey selections in Texas. The unique craft beer selection continues to grow as well as supports the local Texas breweries in the process. The mission of Barnett’s is to create the best bar and this led to creating a great specialty cocktail menu and the largest whiskey selection in Texas.

Texas Whiskey Society

The Texas Whiskey Society exists to bring people of all backgrounds and different levels of knowledge of whiskey together. Our goal is to educate and share our passion for whiskey with everyone. On the last Thursday of each month the Texas Whiskey Society hosts a tasting for members with a short presentation about the different aspects of whiskey at Barnett's Public House. Join our society and come learn about and drink great whiskey!
