They hosted a party for my work and it was so much FUN!! Excellent food and drinks plus they have space for everything. We had an art auction, product raffle, live band, dance floor, photo booth, etc. Perfect place if you are looking to host...an event in Long Beach! Love the old chandeliers.More

Had a business event here and it couldn't have been better. The food that was served was excellent. The cocktails were very good and a great selection of craft beer. Later in the evening the dueling pianos started at it was a lot of fun.

Not sure what the last bad review was thinking, but I had the shrimp and polenta and it was absolutely delicious. Season very well with a sauce that was very similar to what you would have on Nashville fried chicken. So it was quite spicy...and balanced very well with the creamy polenta. By far one of the more interesting places I have seen an old building converted into a restaurant this was an old bank.Towards the bathrooms you will see a “bouncer” and I am told that there is a speakeasy downstairs in the old vault but we did not have time to check it out. Overall the service was very attentive and the food from the salads to the soup was delicious. Lots of space to accommodate large parties we were a party of seven.More

We booked an early table as we were headed to the theater. The historic building is very interesting and it goes down hill from there. Tables are bland looking and it took ten minutes and we had to ask for a server. Drinks were ordered...but they had trouble finding a non alcoholic beer that was on the menu, came well after other drinks arrived and with a glass of ice as it "wasn't too cold" according to server #2 who tried very hard as opposed to server #1. Shrimp and polenta had poor texture and bland flavor. The meat loaf was average. The burger was cooked properly but spoiled with all the junk put on it. The salads were generous but over dressed and we said they were going to be shared and when we asked for plates, saucers were provide. We also asked to sit in a booth but were told they are all reserved though 10 were empty. We were told we could have one but needed to be out in an hour. When we left an hour an twenty minutes later, some were still empty. It is a shame this space couldn't be put to better use and the staff better trained. We usually give every place a second try as anyone can have a off night, we we won't here. plates when we asked forMore

I had brunch here on a recent business trip. It was recommended to us by our hotel. It is a very cool, old place right on Pine Ave. The food was excellent.

The food is surprisingly good for brunch. Reasonably priced, and gorgeous ambiance. The bottomless champagne flows and the burger is really great. I have been for mixed afternoon drinks as well and they are expertly made. I would recommend and I will be back. Great...place to take out of town guests. They do a great job of handling parties large and small. Be sure to reserve as it gets crowded especially at brunch.More

Aaron the bartender (in the speakeasy) was the at most professional barkeep in all of Long Beach. With precise attention to detail, Arron provides a top-notch experience. With crisp and fresh drinks at the ready Arron is the man who keeps partons thirsty for more....I can't say enough about his professionalism and his passion for his craft. Amazing time! will definitely come back for another night out!More

A place to be seen before you go somewhere else for dinner. The interior is really the draw. The cavernous ceiling and smooth surfaces make it difficult to hear your happy hour mates. Still, worth a try.
