My wife and I stopped here for drinks and music before dinner. We sat at the bar and had great service. The martinis were excellent and the bartender had some great personal recommendations that he let us try. Fun time!

It was sprinkling when I arrived and the restaurant was nearly empty. I arrived early with my ten year old son and was met with... More

As others have said this small place in located in a side street in Old Colorado City. There is a fairly small parking lot out back and parking on the street as well. We went here with about 15 friends on a Friday night for a retirement party. We arrived around 7:30 and we all sat outside in an open... More

Yummy, with fantastic live music and impromptu dancing! We had a group of 3 couples. We ended up ordering EVERY Tapa at least twice! SO good!

The wine was undrinkable. The service was slow. We ordered the Chacutterie plate which was bland cheese and crackers strait out of plastic wrap. No almonds, cranberry crackers or olives per the menu. The owners should be embarrassed.

Small jazz bar. Make reservations early - only open a few nights a week. Tapas for food - and they're excellent. Nice atmosphere - great place for a date. unique.

Can't fathom what the wait staff was doing rather than realizing you have so few customers, how could the service be so bad?

very nice place to sit and enjoy live jazz music in this city. It is a cozy spot and i have yet to be displeased with any of my ventures to this establishment! sometimes i have had to wait a bit to get seated inside due to space constraints but once seated, all is good!

Went to this place with another couple. Have been her many times in the past a sadly little has changed. Our server was terrible and made excuses for his performance. He walked by many times when drinks were empty and did his best to ignore our table. It was obvious who his favorite tables were and ours was not one... More

This little gem is hidden on a back street in Old Colorado City. The only evidence of the entrance is small "M" on the gate to the patio, but once you find it, you'll discover it is worth the search. My husband and I enjoyed the live music, while sampling several of the tapas they have to offer. Small plates,... More
