Stopped in after dinner for a cocktail and ended staying until close. They make great cocktails and seem to have a small appetizer selection that looked good. Service was always on top of checking on you.

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.
