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

We have been going to old town for years but have missed stopping by PK. We had a date night and we were all dressed up (suite for him, dress for me) so the time seemed appropriate. We had heard there was a strict dress code and they were discriminating on their clientele. We were so wrong about this place.... More

Friends were visiting from out of town and they learned about this great place so we all checked it out. Make reservations and go have fun! It was just super fun to go to a place behaving like a speakeasy. You have no idea from outside that it exists! It's totally unique! You are greeted at the door. Our host,... More

Delicious cocktails, but don't plan on just walking in. Take the time to make a reservation and be aware that you have two hours to linger, or book yourself a double reservation. This was my second time and as long as you are aware of the rules, you'll love it.

This is my second time here. It is based on the 1920's vibe Speakeasy Theme. It is by reservation only and comparable to a cozy brownstone. The drinks are really amazing. This is for those who prefer a quiet romantic atmosphere or in good company with friends. Its large enough around the bar for about 8 people max. The food... More
