Everything its cracked up to be. Smart cocktails delivered smartly. Sit at the bar and watch true mixologists work. Maybe learn a thing or two!

We were early, so could get a table for 6 without much of a fuss. Was very quickly filled up with guests soon and eventhough stiffly priced, I found the place to be relaxing where music is not blaring and will allow you to enjoy a drink with happy conversations.

Wife and I met another couple. I am older and hate waiting outside a bar. After the 20 minute wait, everything got better. The most impressive thing about the place is their drink selection and knowledgable staff. At $12 a drink they better be good or interesting. They were and besides the wait, this place was pretty good.

This place was a neat bar. Probably a good place to take a date? The mixed drinks were infused and were very good. I would definitely recomend this if you are not looking for a stereotypical bar

It's supposed to have "mixology" drinks, but for the price ($12-15) it wasn't anything special. The fries were good though. I've been to other places that have "mixology" drinks and this place doesn't compare. Also, we waited an hour and a half!! Since we were just visiting Chicago, we waited, otherwise, we would have left. We did have a party of 5 and it seemed smaller party sizes were getting in much quicker.
