“Best food I've had in Fort Collins.”
Reviewed November 17, 2013 via mobile

Atmosphere is great, food was even better. I didn't expect so much class there and the drinks were definitely sinfully amazing. Food is prepared beautifully, everything I tried was great. Great for first dates or to have a great time with friends!

“surprise, surprise”
Reviewed November 12, 2013

This basement space is tiny, but the menu is not. The variety of dishes, some large and some smaller, shows incredible kitchen creativity. We had three of the smaller plate for the two of us and could not finish it all. The food was delicious; the presentation artistic. The wine list is extensive, both by the glass and by the bottle. First rate in all categories!

“Sinfully delicious cocktails with jazz”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

The attention from the server and other staff was just the perfect amount for a dimly lit jazz bar. The lighting is relaxing while the "not your granpa's parlor jazz" keeps the atmostphere moving. Sinfully delicious cocktails, small plates that make it really easy to enjoy multiples and share, and an atmosphere that transports you back to a pre-smart phones time when sipping a cocktail in a dark bar was not punctuated with the glow of your neighbors cell phone. Was there on a Wednesday and the atmosphere was very relaxed, heard that weekend nights the place is pretty busy.

“A classic Cocktail Bar”
Reviewed August 28, 2013

So classic! Dark and moody, wonderful cocktails, great small plate appetizers and sultry jazz. We couldn't of chosen a better place to sip drinks, listen to jazz, and just relax. A young man we were talking to said it was the classiest bar in Ft. Collins and I have to agree. A perfect evening.

“Surprise on the lower level! A real find!”
Reviewed July 27, 2013

We met friends at this bar, planning to meet there and go somewhere else. Three hours later, we left, happy to have had a GREAT time in a wonderful space. Drinks were excellent. Bartenders were professional and warm. Tapas exceeded our expectations. This sounds strange but the potato tapas were absolutely sublime. We'll return just for them! This is a real find!
