This is my place to go for a true cocktail. Everything they do here is quality and the service is always top notch. The dark atmosphere is comfortable and well decorated. The drinks are the best in town!! Try “the boss” you won’t be disappointed.

Stopped in for drinks after a long day of drinking. The bourbon menu is pretty extensive and they did a nice job with the old fashioned. It’s a pretty cool spot.

The lighting is low but its supposed to be like a speakeasy. their drink menu far supersedes their food. if h=you are there for food, their cheese plate is amazing but everything else seemed average, if your there for drinks, your set!

Sometimes it is really busy, sometimes quite. We hit it perfect. Six of us in the corner. Good drinks, quick service. I have been a few times and every time has been good.

Friends brought us here. It's their usual on Friday haunt. Intimate, dark. Like from another era. Staff is great. Unique, well crafted cocktails. Only problem was that the charcuterie plate was Lame. Capital L. One small pile of sub-par American prosciutto and one type of...More
