“Loved this place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2013

Friendly staff, amazing cocktails. You just tell the cocktail makers what flavours you like, and they get the gist of what you want and keep them coming with a little bit of cocktail drama added in! Sportello upstairs is good for a bite to eat as well.

“Fun Drinks!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2013

This is a great little spot to grab a drink with friends. The bar only holds around 68 people, so you might have to wait in line, but it's worth it! It's easy to talk and hear the friends you are with. The bartenders will make you anything you like and have great recommendations!

“Great atmosphere and drinks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2013

Made it in for last call - bartenders were friendly, insightful and great at "helping" with your drink order. Quite the show when the drink is made and an overall fun experince.

We didn't eat -

“Amazing drinks, fun, great food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2013

I love this place, have been there close to 15 times and never had a negative experience. Yes, it's a small place and there is a wait if you're there at peak hours but IT IS WORTH IT. The bartenders listen to what you want, ask smart questions and then deliver you a drink perfectly crafted to your taste. This is an experience, sit at the bar and tell your bartender what you're in the mood for (e.g. something with citrus, not too sweet) and wait for the genius to happen.

In terms of food, I've never had their burger... Because they're always out by the time I order it! Apparently it's very popular and I'd venture to guess, really good. I've had their beef tartare and it's out of this world, definitely give that a try. The fries... THE FRIES. GET THE FRIES. Finally, the heavenly bag o' doughnuts. They are beautiful and light doughnut holes, brought to you in a paper bag with a different dipping sauce depending on the season.

I would advise getting there early and making a night of it. Get several cocktails, eat some fries, finish with a bag o' doughnuts, stumble to a cab, get home and get the best sleep of your life. This is my favorite bar... Ever. I've been there with friends and on a couple of dates and let me tell you, it's always good.

“Cool Experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

Worth going to for the experience if you're already in the area and the line isn't too bad.. we went on a Saturday night and there was hardly anyone on line, service was much friendlier than I imagined it was going to be based on prior reviews (maybe since it was a quiet Saturday night).
