Plus: amazing ambiance, hidden entrance, great decor, music and helpful staff. Amazing selection of cocktails and they serve beautifully made burgers and hotdogs.

Minus: doors can be hard to open/slide

Order: any kind of hotdog paired with classic cocktails, I had the coleslaw chilli dog which was delicious.

This is a date place and if you go there for that, it's worth it for the ambience.

But if you are here for the drinks, no use paying for overpriced drinks that you can get elsewhere at a lower price.

Don't get me wrong, it's not to say it isn't a nice place because it is. But its not a place where you go to drink-drink. Its a place where you go to talk and drink.

The atmosphere and the vintage/retro vibe simply works! A nice and cozy place to dine and have drinks.

ABV. Hard to find but once you do its worth it. I'll leave the comments about the decor and everything else to the other reviewers who did a good job explaining. The service is awesome. Met Ken, Abby and a few others that were just awesome. Be adventuous in your choice or ask the bartenders to make a special drink created for you and your taste and personality.
I live in the states and near NY city and can tell you this is as good or better than any there.
Great job ABV.
We will be back.
BTW.....the food is expertly prepared. Even the Best Hot Dog in the Philippines.
Make sure you eat.

I went on one of their weekend cocktail classes (shaken and stirred class) and it's a great way to spend an afternoon. Bar is small and intimate, all the bartenders are highly knowledgeable, we learned how to make several classic cocktails such as negronis and whiskey sours. They keep the class small (10 or 12 people) so everyone gets their turn at the stick. The bartender Ken also helped me create a smoky bespoke cocktail suited to my own tastes. We get to drink everything we make, so by the end of the class I was happily trading cocktails with similarly-tipsy classmates.
