This place sounded so cool in the reviews, but I didn't love it. The door man tried to scam us for a $5 cover--we heard him doing it to others too. It was super busy as you would expect on a Saturday night, but the...More

We went, we had a nice cocktail and beer. Bar lady was nice and made a cocktail that she thought I would like. The only problem is there wasn't much atmosphere- I think a lot of that is to do with it being a Thursday...More

I come here often and my boyfriend and I rave about this being one of our favorite downtown bars. We came a few Saturday's ago, sat down at the bar, and ordered from the male bartender behind the bar. I ordered a gin and tonic...More

Stopped in for a couple drinks before dinner with some friends... We were all pretty disappointed. Thought they'd be playing up the 20s speakeasy theme, but really not... Just seemed like a bar, and a so-so one at that. Some decor items yes, but nothing...More

This place is fun! We read that you need a password to get in but that's only after 8pm if you want to get in without paying a cover. We asked a local bartender elsewhere and he obtained the pw for us. Memphis is a...More

First place we went to in Memphis. It was packed and luckily there was a poker game that just ended so we got a table. It is a speakeasy feel for sure. Drinks were strong and food was good. Mac and cheese was great and...More
