Bit of a hidden bar and not much about it. Standard cocktail menu and they tasted quite watery and not very strong. They have a happy hour but the menu was hidden behind the bar. Wouldn't return.

Cute little cocktail bar in nice part of town. Fair prices and good service. Friendly atmosphere from the minute you step in. Even the doorman turns the outdoor heating on for you. Staff respondent and polite behind the bar.
