Will not talk on the door policy, as I have no experience with it, however we walked straight in and it was amazing. The cocktails do not have prices on the menu, which I find a bit if a turnoff, (they average at $18). The...More

If you're looking for something different -this is the place! Cool tasty drinks. A bit pricy ($18) but Hey, it's NYC. Nice place to hang out with friends. Music not too loud so you can have a conversation.

Worse service I have ever seen. I have been waiting for 40 minutes to get a cocktail. The bar team is disorganize swearing. The cocktail does not even worth it. And the price of the drink is not even on the menu.

Bursting with an amazing array of sights, sounds, and
smells on every block, a visit to Chinatown feels like
entering a different world. It’s a colorful spectacle
that gets even more crowded on weekends, when families
stream in to enjoy huge dim sum feasts and to stock up

the buzz, grab something sweet from one of the many
bakeries in the area and head to Columbus Park, where
