Been here many times, especially on Friday evening for jazz (no cover). Besides the cocktails and food you may order 30+ draft and houdreds of bottle beers from Trappeze Pub

We stopped in for a drink before another engagement. They had unusual but really good drinks, a friendly staff, and a nice atmosphere. We'll go back.

Went in late to meet friends for a drink. IMPORTANT: Highwire & Trapeze share a kitchen and a seating chart. We came in through Highwire & took an open table, the server had to check with the hostess at Trapeze to make sure we could...More
