Look for the Blue Light

This is my second time here. It is based on the 1920's vibe Speakeasy Theme. It is by reservation only and comparable to a cozy brownstone. The drinks are really amazing.

My 2 girlfriends and I went here in celebration of one's birthday. Birthday girl had been there previously. Two of us were first timers, visiting from out of town. We went to an unmarked door with a blue light, hit the doorbell and waited. We were greeted by a nice hostess who led us up the candlelit stairs. We got... More

We got lucky to show up right when they opened, the blue light was on and they were able to take the four of us. It's a great place to grab drinks before dinner. The drinks are so creative and unique, nothing you will find in an average bar. Such a great speak easy, and you really feel like your... More

I've been there a few times on business trips, and eventually took my wife. Great atmosphere, but service could be significantly slower with a full house. It takes time to make a cocktail a certain way, and that shouldn't bother - especially if you are going to such an establishment. Infusions and extracts are made in house, great selection of...

As you'd expect, this place is chic and substantive. The bartenders have come up with a cocktail list that is original and locally sourced, each crafted with a perfect flavor balance. The intimate ambiance (the staff do a great job of not over-accepting guests) is perfect for a date or small groups. The bartenders are artists doing truly creative work.

If you love solid, old-school craft cocktails and modern, experimental concoctions, this is the place for you. These folks really know how to make a drink the right way. It's old-school, traditional bartending along with some very creative new recipes. I love sitting at the bar and watching the bartender perform their magic. The entire operation -- everyone -- from... More

This is the type of place you bring someone you want to impress because it shows that you're in the know. No flip flops or baseball caps allowed here, and you can't just pop in on the weekend, as most tables are reserved a month out. Darkly lit, intimate, dark wood. You only know its there by the blue light... More
