Classic bar and one of the few places that you don't have to wait to get into. Good 80's music by a live band. For me, it was just too loud as I wanted to hang out with my girlfriends (which means talking to each...More

Loved perching at the bar with burger and Bloody Mary, listening to some high quality lunchtime jazz. The brunch runs 11am-3pm, get there early (particularly if you have a large party and want a decent table) as it's first come first served. $4 brunch cocktails...More
