Barmini was an amazing surprise! They have an impressive menu with a gazillion options of cocktails! Ultra modern, hip and cozy at the same time. We were 6 people including 2 youth kids and we all had fun! The food is above and beyond... impossible to describe and so worth it to try.
Highly recommend!

This was the best cocktail experience we have ever had. Our server crafted each of our drinks... there isn't just one bartender. Although the room was full, it was quiet and easy to converse. Since reservations are necessary, they do a great job of keeping the ambience of the lounge more like a restaurant. Ask to sit at the communal table... then you can talk to other patrons about their drinks and see what other cocktails are being served. The décor is delightful. It is contemporary yet very comfortable. If one is accustomed to paying "city" rates for drinks, the pricing will not feel exorbitant. Cocktails range approximately $12-18 however, we decided to get one of the flights @ $50 each. It was an amazing value. This is a must-go place if you appreciate specialty cocktails, beautiful stemware and customized garnishes/accessories. The food was little pricey for the size of the appetizers however, it was all delicious and the "Foieffle" was to die for. Just try it.

Ultra hip decor with a crazy cactus lounger that accommodated all 4 of us while we looked through the huge menu of artisanal cocktails. Try the wood smoke tequila cocktail - it's as delicious as it is interesting to watch being made. If you can't wait a year for a reservation at Minibar, this is the next best thing!

Awesome place to go if you like to talk with your friends or date! Loved how modern yet cozy this bar was- very interesting design and the menu is so versatile. I would recommend this to a young couple visiting the area that wants to go have a drink but not be in a crowded noisy smokey atmosphere!!

What an awesome place to stop by for a drink, that is crafted almost as if it's a piece of art. The drinks are fantastic, and so are the mixologists. If you're looking for a cool vibe with excellent drinks, do yourself a favor and stop through here. Another Jose Andreas masterpiece!
