Came here 3 or 4 times during a 4 day business conference. Taylor the bartender one of the best bartenders I've encountered in a long time. Not embarrassed to say I've met a few, and did some myself 20+ years ago! Great place and people. Thanks

We had a terrific experience, we just popped in because the band was really good. We walked in from the street, and quickly got served and found a seat in nice patio furniture near the band. It's an open air venue, with patio heaters if needed... it was very comfortable. Service was great, management is on top of things. Great... More

We found this place by chance after trying to find somewhere to sit and chat while having a drink. The atmosphere was different but enjoyable. The Brut Rose was amazing and my husband tried a fruity, mixed drink that didn't disappoint. The service was great!

We sat outside to have a quick drink before dinner. Not a fan of this place. They were out of the wine we ordered, and it just wasn't a memorable stop for us.

My girlfriend and I rarely go out to clubs. We were in town visiting my mother, who is quite sick. After a month of hospital visits, we decided we should try to have some fun on a Friday night. We went out with some great friends and were having a great time. I don't drink often, and hadn't had much... More

Came here for a second time while visiting the city. First time was in afternoon and place was somewhat busy. Came here last Sunday and entertainment was ending around 11pm. Too early! Also drinks are double the price as AC's across the street.

They have some of the best dirty martini's I have ever had. Service is great, prices during happy hour will have you coming back. We liked it so much we went back agin. We did not get anything to eat but other couples were dining there and their food looked good. A fun place to relax and unwind.

We saw this place and decided it would be good for a drink outside OR inside. Went for indoors as the wildlife was a bit ((active the last few days)) Good drinks, staff were good.

My husband and I stopped in for Happy Hour late on a Thursday afternoon and enjoyed the half priced bottle of wine special. Very pleasant place to sit outside at low tables on comfortable cushioned chairs. Just what we needed to relax for an hour before heading to our dinner destination. We did not sample any of their food. Our... More

My husband and I heard the music and had to try. The singer is wonderful and the setting is even better. The drinks are a good poor and nice touch after dinner place.
