A mix perfect mix of New York east village and Rio. Lovely cocktails - the Black Russian is recommended - with a quality menu and friendly service. The building itself is a little beauty, couldn't say a bad thing about it. Very popular with gay men hence the NYC comparison!

We were a table of 4, 3 of the dinners came out correctly the 4th no. But after waiting for an 1.5 hours for food we... More
