“Great atmosphere and drinks!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

Just visited on a Friday night and had no trouble getting a table for 2 at 10pm. I loved the dark, intimate atmosphere in this cozy (i.e. long and narrow) place. The drinks were fun and I would come back and explore the cocktail menu, but I wouldn't bother with food. The duck sliders were just meat, a slice of cucumber on a plain white bun. The pizza was very small, even for an appy. But again, loved the vibe, the lighting and the staff were good.

“a great cocktail bar”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

An awesome bar, great cocktails, and a fine selection of whisky.
The staff are fantastic too, they really know their stuff and how to mix a drink.
A little pricey but worth every penny.

“Excellent cocktail bar!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2013

This place is simply awesome! We went there on a Saturday night for a friend’s birthday (there were 10 of us) and even though the place was pretty busy, the waiters went out of their way to find us a table very quickly. The service was very friendly and efficient. The atmosphere of this bar is very chill and classy, I loved it. We didn’t try the food but the drinks were amazing. The cocktails are not much more expensive than in any other night bars and they are better! You can taste the quality. If you like enjoying nice drinks in an intimate and chill atmosphere; I definitely recommend you check the Keefer bar out!

“Second Time Here - Even Better”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

It is rare to find a bar and mixologist that puts thought, care and inventiveness into a drink. This place is just the place for that. Absolutely unbelievable the types of drinks that they can make. The inside is almost mysterious with the decorations, the somber darkness, the red lights on the liquor, the TV which features a live closed circuit camera of the inside of bar. The people behind the bar are all friendly, helpful and imaginative. Go to this bar.

“Dark, unique atmosphere with great music.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013 via mobile

Very dark but sexy, loved the setup and infared tvs trained on the musician (Tuesday night regular) we ordered a wide variety of drinks and they all had their unique spins - love the TCM theme. Atmosphere is definitely rich here...
