I love Town Talk. Great food, fantastic drinks. The bartenders really know their stuff and they're super nice. They make a mean Aviation, and plenty of more original drinks as well. If I weren't a bit too poor to drop $8-10 per drink, I would come here way too often. Incidentally, it was featured on Food Network's Diners, Drive-ins and Dives program.
Sadly, Town Talk closed a couple weeks back. The same guy opened a place downtown called The Inn recently, however. I hear the cocktails are just as good. I even think the head bartender from Town Talk is there now.
Yes, sadly it did close down. It will be missed. The original owners were Aaron Johnson and Tim Niver. They sold it off quite awhile ago. They now as you stated run The Inn http://tinyurl.com/4zhzp2g Prairie Ale House prairiealehouse.com/ and The Strip Club (steakhouse) www.domeats.com
The barman's name is Jesse Held that went to The Inn. He is Great.
