Okay place for drinks. No creeps pushing to get to your table (like in the Kitty Cat next door), not too loud music on the bar side. The service is slow, but you get what you want in decent time. Sitting next to a table...More

One of my favorite bands in the world, Cafe Accordion Orchestra, is a regular attraction here. On Sundays, they have a live tango band and lots of good tango dancers. Everything on the menu is good. The room is what wonderland would have looked like...More

We really enjoyed this eclectic restaurant/bar/ballroom. We wanted more than a burger from Annie's, so we tried our luck. Several half price apps and HH drinks filled us up while a band played for ballroom dancers in the other room. We enjoyed wings (boneless), sliders,...More
