We were told this bar closed its doors a month ago. There really is not much else around this area except Gauchos.

Came here on a Thursday night after dinner. Place was dead. The female bartender was very pleasant and the cocktail list was extensive. We had a couple martinis and beers and listened to great music that had music videos on the wall. Would return.

Great list of martinis. Cool laid back vibe. Live music when we went on Friday. Wish we could have gone more than once.

We came here while waiting for a table at El Gaucho - great place for drinks and dancing. We had a great time talking and dancing with the bartenders there. I would definitely come back.
