Very cool bar. We stopped to try a martini. I got the caramel apple. Very very STRONG but tasty. Very friendly people working. We missed the live music but that would have been cool.

Stopped in on a Friday night for some drinks with friends. The atmosphere was cool and relaxed. A live band added to the ambiance. The staff was hilarious and made the night even more enjoyable. A new hangout for the next trip!

I had made a reservation a few weeks before and they didn't have it ready for us.. I was disappointed the bride didn't get her sign but over all the experience was good. Drinks were worth every penny because they were very strong.

Had a wonderful time dancing with band - Aaron Williams and The Hoodoo. Lively atmosphere. Hopping bar. Staff was awesome. Had fun. The only damper is the girl wedding parties which tend to dominate floor simply standing or jumping around!
