“Excellent bartenders”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2009

We stopped in just doing a little barhopping in the area. We were enticed by the soft glow that the place was emitting. The bartenders were just as inviting. It was pretty busy and I think that's the fastest service I've ever gotten when I walked up to a busy bar. They seemed really on top of things and extremely nice, from who took our order, to who refreshed our drinks, to who got our check ready for us. I highly recommend it.
