Hi Drew, Thanks so much for your kind words. While we do seek a "sultry, smoky" ambiance, we'll check the lights to make sure they're not TOO low. Come visit again soon- Cheers!

Traveling solo and sat at the bar, excellent suggestions from the bartender. The smoked salmon is a winner. Would definitely stop again when driving on I-495.

Great spot for drinks and apps, and easy access to rt. 3 and 495, albeit a classic martini or something new ---Kudos to the bar staff for being patient and trying to make a drink not on the menu.
