It's a throwback to '50s Las Vegas with period furniture and music from the Rat Pack. The staff are very friendly and knowledgeable about the extensive martini menu. Martinis are great!

REtro drink menu. Old fashioned seating. Fun going on at all the tables. It's in the basement but doesn't matter. It's a must in Lincoln.

Stumbled upon this place and stayed for a cocktail. It’s reminiscent of the 1960s Rat Pack era. Martinis, Gin Gimlets, Old Fashioned....you name it. It was easy to talk to one another and people watch. Worth stopping by for some Sinatra music and a cocktail...More

Had way too many yummy raspberry cosmo's! Love all the 50's 60's deco and the Frank Sanatra music. Was packed on a Saturday night, we got lucky with 2 seats at the bar.

Plays all the greats from the 50’s and 60’s. Not loud - so you can still talk with everyone at your clamshell booth or retro table. The wait staff is dressed in black and white and keeps the theme going. The drinks are amazing and...More
