Influenced by the People, Places, and History of the Midwest ...

A cozy bistro in a restored historical building, nestled in the heart of downtown Bolivar Missouri.  

Basil & Bourbon combines the elegance of an old world cafe with the casual nature of a neighborhood bistro.  Our aim is simple: to honor markets and farmers from one season to the next, nurture our cooks with a balance between authenticity and spontaneity.


With an abundance of natural light and beautiful views, it is the ideal space for your luncheonette, your before-work/after-work respite, or a relaxed long dinner of shared dishes.
