Loungey with a 1970s style chic – think purple neon lights and white or red leather seats – oddly endearing. Space is very quiet during the early week, but this is perfect for having the bartenders create a bespoke cocktail for you. Later in the week, the energy level ramps up.
WHAT WE WOULD WEAR
Smart casual earlier in the week; party clothes later in the week (sexy little top or cute dress)
GO HERE WITH
A big group of friends; yourself (during the quieter days early in the week)
20-/30-somethings rule here, although the bartenders do attract cocktail connoisseurs with their high-quality ingredients.
WHY WE LIKE IT
Bartenders are true mixologists; they take great pleasure in their craft and use only the finest and freshest of ingredients.
WHAT WE WOULD CHANGE
The lack of a critical mass of folks early in the week can be kind of a bummer. While great for conversation, the space screams for a higher number of bodies than single-digits.
GOOD TO KNOW
Recipe for the Drake’s Mojito stems back to 1586. Food is surprisingly delicious, although it comes in small portions. Check out the beef tataki and sea bass which are supposed to be pretty tasty.
