I have never actually been able to call at 3 and get a reservation, but I have gone in to the city and got my name on the list. The wait to get in was about 2 hours so my boyfriend and I went somewhere to eat and then came back. As soon as we arrived back his phone rang and we were told we could be let in. It was only a few min later we entered the secret door in the back of the phone booth. SO CLEVER!! Love the idea - it's a true cocktail lounge. The way these bartenders craft a cocktail is amazing. I wanted something with bubbles and ginger and who knows what they created but it was delicious. Expect to spend some money b/c this is Manhattan, but the prices were average for NYC. The food list was short but that’s not what we went for so it was no sweat off my back the staff was lovely!!! Kinda – helpful and accommodating!!! PS: It's great for a date b/c there is no loud music and you can actually talk to people who are with you!!!
