.....I've ever been in.....and that's a lot. Ambiance, service, cocktails and food all top notch. The six of us planned on one cocktail then out the door.....but ended up staying for a fabulous dinner.....and made a very enjoyable evening of it.

We had the pan seared salmon on a bed of greens. It was excellent! Complimentary munchies and bread. Friendly and excellent wait staff.

We visited the Armory for happy hour while staying at the Regency. The drinks were excellent!! I can't attest to the food as we didn't eat, but we did see other people's meals and they looked really good.

We accidentally discovered this an a rainy night when we were looking for the upstairs restaurant. It's a cool old spot that feels like it's got history, even if it doesn't.

Nice quiet place to stop in for a cocktail before ending the day. Checked out the menu and it has a decent selection of appetizers and sandwiches, but e did not order food. The drinks were fabulous, and the atmosphere is great.

Stopped in after a long day of travel and fell in love with the quirky, warm, and cozy interior. Stayed because the drinks were amazing and the food yummy. Interesting mix of hotel guests and locals. My friend closed her eyes every time she took a sip of her Espresso Martini (one of the best she's ever had anywhere) because... More
