Small, intimate space, and loud. A tad difficult carrying on a conversation. If you are looking for a cozy spot for an after dinner drink, give this consideration. Keep in mind, at least for when we were there, it is LOUD ...

If you like craft cocktails or a well made classic drink, go by and see Casper. He knows so much about the spirits, you appreciate your well made drink even more.

We were advised that this would make for a nice "parent's night cap" as the volume would be subdued, and the setting pleasant. It's all relative. The volume was definitely lower than earlier in the night, and the setting enjoyable for a little conversation before...More

This isn't the easiest place to find even though it's a stones throw from Toomer's Corner but it's worth finding. It's a hidden away bar for older (older than 21..this is a college town after all) people that like to chill, listen to live music...More

After a VERY busy day with my student it was time for an adult hour! My husband and I were told about this place by a local. He was right. It has the feel of a speakeasy.. There is a serious set of steps to...More

Not a lot to say. If you don't kill yourself going up or down the staircase, you might enjoy the quiet, lackadaisical atmosphere of a simple bar. Reasonable prices, mostly inhabited by college kids. At least it's quiet, you can enjoy your conversation.

PERFECT Cosmopolitan followed by fabulous martini! These bartenders know what they're doing. Best cocktails ever, away from the young, drunk, beer in a plastic cup crowd. Can't wait to return!

Heard this was a good place for a more mature crowd in a college town. Also that the drinks were above average. Those reviews were right on. My wife and I came here after an Auburn away game win. The drinks were great and well...More
