“Great Drinks, Music & People”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2014

Such a beautiful place. So in love with their herb garden that they use in their super scrumptious libations. If a drink has muddled berries, organic grown herbs and candied ginger I am there with a thirsty gaping mouth.

Went early on a Friday night and it was so quaint and comfortable. It was not packed and quite enjoyable. While there were not a lot of smoking hot Chiquitas there were attractive people. It has a nice huge outside patio too.

I tried going back at 1:00 AM and there was a line around the block to get in so I bailed. The only lines I enjoy do not involve people. Apparently this place is uber popular. I actually went back a third time that weekend at 2:00 AM on Saturday night and there was no line but the place was uncomfortably jam packed sardine style so I did not stay long.

The DJ was superb, spinning a splendid mix from the past 3 decades and had the place absolutely bumping.

I love the music, the creative and delicious drinks and the layout but am only interested in visiting at off hour times.

A note to management: the Inis & Gunn regular beer is prolifically better than the rum cask version. Please put the original on the menu.

“Great place to hang out”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2014 via mobile

Cool laid back venue in brickell, great place to avoid the hype. They also have a back patio so when the weather is nice it's a nice place to hang out.

“Good drinks, great atmosphere!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

Everything is great. The location, the music, the crowd and the back of the bar is open and decorated well. I felt like I was in a corona commercial. I turned 21 there and it was one hell of a time!
