You open the doors to suddenly find that you've entered Paris. The ambience draws you in. The deep South has disappeared, and in its stead there are before you jazz music, absinthe, and a clock hanging above the bar that never ticks past ten 'til two. From the tiled floors to the mahogany wooded bar table, everything about Circa 1875 makes you feel as if you've left the South and entered a scene from a Woody Allen movie where you'll gaze upon Ernest Hemingway drinking whiskey at the bar.
Circa 1875 is a slice of Paris uprooted and gently placed in the heart of Savannah for all to indulge in all its wonder.
