You can almost imagine yourself a century ago sipping cocktails in this historic bar. You can probably imagine puffing cigars too-but I don't think they allow it now. The service is great and I suspect they could whip up any drink you might want. My wife was a little taken aback when the waitress asked me if I wanted blue... More

My husband and I recently had pre- dinner cocktails at the bar and really enjoyed the ambiance, service, and the cocktail. The bartender was courteous, friendly and makes a good drink. Although the prices are on the high end for Grand Rapids, guests receive a little relish holder with small servings of nuts, chips, and charcuterie and the drinks are... More

This place is always wonderful. Great service from a well informed staff. The atmosphere could not be better. Over the past 20 years, it has only gotten better!

beautiful wood in this bar, a quaint, quiet upscale bar to enjoy a peaceful cocktail and enjoy a good conversation. Staff were kind and were excellent at bartending as the liquors are well above top shelf. I only wish Michigan would change the no smoking ban in some places, i would love to have enjoyed a fine cigar while there.

This is a lovely bar with very knowledgeable bartenders. The atmosphere is perfect after a long day of work. I especially like the fact that chocolate is given with your bar tab.

I got a spicy Bloody Mary and my husband got a Captain and "Pepsi". If that qualifies as a drink. Love the atmosphere but my Bloody Mary was suppose to come with jalapeño stuffed olives and didn't. :(.
