We had a great time at the various bars, we visited the 3 that were open at the time. We met some very nice/fun people and the employees were very friendly and attentive.... More

Run away as fast as you can from this place. It's is filled with losers, drug dealers and hustlers!! This is by far the most run down, dirty, most seedy place I've ever experienced in my 48 years on this planet a date will rob you blind!!

The drinks and food are very good,... More

The cabana bar was awesome with Larry and Jake along with Jay at the Main Bar. The Code is really cool with Buzz!! Very nice staff and clean... More

Had the best Birthday weekend. Manager Samantha went the extra mile to make my day. Friendly staff and great drinks. I had visited there back in July and now, the transformation with the new management is astounding. Can't wait for my next trip.
