I have been here several times and have sat in all possible locations-- bar, table, back room. The experience really depends on where you sit. Sitting at the bar allows you to experience all the magic of the bartenders. Tables are more of a "only interacting with the person you came with" kind of night. The back room can be... More

Adam, the mixologist of the night I visited, allowed me to experience PX's take on a couple of classic cocktails. They do a very good job departing from the classical preparations. Make reservations!

We have visited the PX several times over the last couple years. Each time experiencing a different bartender (same assistant bartender tho) but always with the same enjoyment. The menu drinks are all wonderful, but the experience of watching the process of assembling the drinks was and is memorable. This artistry can only be experienced when you sit at the... More

My husband and I like to visit PX every couple months to get away from the standard loud bar that is so packed you can not move. You must have a reservation and are allotted two hours. If the booking after you does not show, you are allowed to stay and drink. Drinks are very strong and they are willing... More

The best drinks we had here were the one with the blue curacao (it actually looks green though) and the melon one. They were very good and the space was nice but if you don’t make it during your trip, you’re not missing out on the best cocktails ever. El Vez in Philadelphia has equally good cocktails at a far...

It's a very cool experience. The hostess leads you up a dark staircase to this very intimate space. We sat at the bar. The drinks are not cheap but it's amazing the level of details the bartender puts into them. The drinks are a bit strong, but the bartender made something a bit more fruity that was to my wife's...

Made reservation for date night, got dressed up. Inside of PX is dingy and worn out, bartender tried to invent a cocktail with rye but failed, and worst of all, 2 loud dudes in Hawaiian board shorts and flip flops sat down right next to us. If it's gonna be like Dukes barefoot bar in Waikiki, then call it that... More

We made reservations for 8 for four of us, arrived a little early and were seated almost immediately. There is a dress code, but a group of people who arrived after us came in shorts and were pretty loud, so I'm not sure it's really enforced. There are only 4 snacks on the menu so eat before you come. The... More

they serve Todd Thrashers designer drinks, which are quite imaginative, but they often leave out most of the alcohol. we had 4 drink each and barely a buzz. They serve little or no food with the drinks..

I go to a lot of great bars, and I hardly ever order off the menu. This whole idea that a bar should even have a menu is relatively new anyway. A really good bartender should be able to make anything. And if not, he should be willing to work with you. I never order a drink I don't know... More
