Laid back atmosphere, the bad was good, and so was the drinks. The owners seemed very nice. We plan to come back.

We stumbled upon this place for the first time on a weeknight. There's a modest cover charge (worth it), and the place was filled with locals and the odd tourist or two (us), and by 9 p.m. the joint was rolling. It's dark, intimate, New...More

Went out for a bachelorette party and manager was rude to multiple people in our party. Pushing people because you do not feel they are moving fast enough is not appropriate, nor is yelling at patrons. Stating "you should just leave if you aren't happy"...More
