Stopped here after dinner for a drink. They have an extensive drink menu and lovely drinks made with fresh ingredients. They do offer some food but we just had drinks and my husband and I had a nice time.

I came here for cocktails and was actually a bit sad to leave for our dinner reservations at another restaurant. Our bartender was super nice, knowledgable, made us laugh, and most importantly, made great cocktails with a little bit of flair. My sister and I...More
