Kudos to Congress Hall for hosting a fabulous 4th. Thanks to Stephen and Eddie for excellent cocktails and warm hospitality. We didn’t attend the picnic but we enjoyed great burgers at the bar. They made organized chaos look easy.

It was cold and windy outside but warm and toasty inside by the fire. Great food and excellent drinks. Jimmy the bartender made us feel at home with fast friendly and attentive service.

Always extremely accommodating. We had a large group come in after a party and they let us hang out a bit later than closing which was much appreciated.

Great room to relax for a drink / night cap. Gets quite busy. Reminds you of an old Bahamian club. Also live music on and off which is nice addition.
