Bartender is super friendly! I am here right now! He made a variation of a Moscow Mule. Super good. Not very pricey. Casual. Not loud. Near so many cool downtown venues. Hotel bar. Really like it.

I used to enjoy dining at City Sen restaurant at City Flats Hotel, but it's gone downhill. The restaurant wasn't busy, but somehow the kitchen got my order wrong and it ended up taking 45 minutes to be served a grilled cheese sandwich. The one...More
