This is my place to go for a true cocktail. Everything they do here is quality and the service is always top notch. The dark atmosphere is comfortable and well decorated. The drinks are the best in town!! Try “the boss” you won’t be disappointed.

Stopped in for drinks after a long day of drinking. The bourbon menu is pretty extensive and they did a nice job with the old fashioned. It’s a pretty cool spot.

Drink menu was unique and non-traditional. Atmosphere was very cool. Staff was delightful. The actual beverage wasn’t what I expected and it was my first visit.

Been wanting to visit this place! First off elevator ride down to a dark hallway, cool! Short walk down into a unique but quaint bar! Lots of sweet girly drinks, my wife went with a bourbon old fashion! She’s like that. Small food menu, but...More

Friends brought us here. It's their usual on Friday haunt. Intimate, dark. Like from another era. Staff is great. Unique, well crafted cocktails. Only problem was that the charcuterie plate was Lame. Capital L. One small pile of sub-par American prosciutto and one type of...More
