The waitress wasn't quite on par, but the bartender was engaging and delightful. Definitely a great place to listen to live music, enjoy the street life, and chill out.

Every night this place has a really good band playing. The genre differs from Jazz, blues to latin too I think. We went for the blues night and really really enjoyed.

The staff is friendly, the food is alright, but the music is FUN! You pay for the food and the ambiance when you come here so if things seem a little pricy, than just remember that the live music is just part of the deal! The service is pretty slow, but mostly, they don't check up on you unless it's... More
