Great drinks, even better prices. Food good too. Service very friendly. It was a good respite from the heat outdoors.

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.

Drinks, menu selections and service were the equal of what we'd found at the parent hotel's restaurant and casual eatery. Dark woods, restrained lighting and comfortable seating combined to offer a soothing end to a busy day of sightseeing.

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

I arrived after the regular restaurant had closed, so the receptionist suggested I try the lounge. Full service bar but also table service. Very nice menu with very good food. I had a lobster stew that was amazing. Great drink menu too.

We were staying at The Regency and wanted to grab a drink close and decided to check out this spot. The atmosphere is dark and relaxing. With a beautiful bar as well as small tables, it is a draw for anyone looking for a great place to end the day. I love chai tea and saw they had a chai... More

I met some friends here for martini Monday and now I know why they are regulars. First of all, $7 Martinis!? Nice! I got the perfect Manhattan and we all shared some happy hour snacks before heading out to dinner. The service was spot on and the bartender was friendly, professional and absolutely knew what he was doing. Next time,... More

I love this place. It has wonderful drinks, great bar snacks, and a full menu. The ambience is great too. My husband and I enjoy going here after dinner in the Old Port. My only complaint is the servers are hit or miss. We have had wonderful servers who have gone above and beyond what is expected and then some... More
