    Everyday there's a drink of the day for $6 all day long. Excellent tunes, awesome bartenders and a sweet patio make this a place to visit. Frequently. A water comes with ice and lemon. What service!

    My wife and I love this place. Rented it out for our engagement party. Super friendly staff. Awesome mixed drinks, beer, and liquor.

    Always chill, never too crowded, and serving up some of the most seriously good cocktails around. Start your evening with a Gabriel’s Gift or The Hanson Dry.

    Cool little spot and an ideal place to chill when there's a long wait at Emily. They have a photo booth and a patio

    The Tux is a great alternative to a Manhattan, but they do the classics too! (get it perfect with a twist, and your rye of choice)

    Reiteration- bartenders are THE best. Never a dull moment, always a good time. "When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro."

    "No movable seats"? Sit where you can. "Not much personality"? Bring better people with you. Bartenders and drinks are great. That's all.

    Low key bar that's usually 45-55% full. Try a corpse reviver!

    The go-to spot for former Moe's loyalists. Great music, fun crowd, always fun.

    The Hanson Dry (gin, bitters, vanilla) = really strong and obvious bitters flavor, almost overwhelming. Comes in a martini glass with a twist of lemon.

    If Chaz were a filmmaker in post WW II Italy, he'd be a neorealist.

    Nice bar atmosphere but doesn't mimic the classy speakeasy that I read about and was looking for.

    Use the ATM in the back, but DON'T check your balance cause "connecting to the host" takes forever!
