FORT WAYNE, Ind. (www.incnow.tv) -- A new bar has opened up on the Landing Downtown, and if you're into bourbons and BBQ, it might just be what you've been looking for.

Red Rok BBQ & Bourbon Saloon opened up on Columbia Street Monday with a menu full of the southern good stuff. The owners are originally from Fort Wayne but have been traveling around the country taste-testing and competing at BBQ events since 1995.

Now they are bringing more than 60 bourbons along with that slow-smoked taste.

"Being a bourbon bar we're looking to attract people just to come hang out, sit enjoy the atmosphere," Chris Wilson, the managing partner said. "We have two patios and I just think it's a really cool atmosphere, cool bar just to relax."

Red Rok is open Monday through Wednesday 11 a.m. to 1 a.m. and Thursday - Saturday until 3 a.m. Sunday it is open 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
