“Great Atmosphere, Awesome Tapas Menu”
Reviewed October 21, 2011

I have gone to this place several times, and loved every time. Cozy, very Art Deco decor, would be fabulous for a flapper/prohibition era theme party.

Their drinks are well done, my favorites include the Prickly Pear margarita, the Filthy Dirty Martini, and the Effen Fresh.

They just introduced a new Tapas menu, which is great. The Olive Medley is a delicious combo of mixed olives, pepperoncini, and mozzarella in a citrus herb marinade with makes the olives pop! The large plate of the apple cider brined Pork Tenderloin amazes with an apple and red cabbage mixture, drizzled with an apple-bourbon sauce. So delicious. Pairs well with the Prohibition Era Sidecar.

For dessert, try the Bacon Truffles or the chocolate fondue. Yummo!!

All in all, this is a great place.

They have many events, including magic acts, music acts, and jewelry shows.

They also cater house parties with food AND cocktails.

“Tini's, Tunes, and Tortes”
Reviewed August 15, 2011

I usually end the evening here paired with a dinner across the street at Paisano's (in Richmond, IL). The live music starts between 8 - 9PM and is very high quality. Types of music I have heard there...jazz, blues, broad-way and popular. Other recommendations..chocolate martini's and one of the desert torte's.
