“That is a serious cocktail list.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

This place just opened 3 weeks ago, or so, and I have not made it past the bar. I may never make it past the bar, and that is not a bad thing. The cocktails are tasty (Masai!), and the vibe is excellent. The food looks good and one can eat at the bar. I shall return.
