We stopped in during the holidays for a late night bite and cocktail, and were very pleased with all aspects of Szmanias ! We sat in the bar, which is has the feel of a warm and cozy library, but actually has lots of seating...More

We wanted to enjoy a dinner in Magnolia Village and this place popped up on TA as a good one. Well, we agree! We popped in early, hoping they were open, only to find that they have a nice bar area, not dank and dark,...More
