    What I love best about this place is you can go with a wine lover, cocktail geek or whisky & beer drinker and all will be satisfied. Can't go wrong w/cheese & meat plate. Sourced from Stinky!

    Great cocktails! The cheese fondue for two, with bread, salami, and apple was perfect. The atmosphere is perfect for any occasion; dress it up or down.

    Two cocktails will throw you for a loop. I saw some amazing meat and cheese plates go by, wish I ate some!

    Brian, the bartender who works on Thursdays (as far as I know), is awesome and makes delicious drinks. He also helps me pick what food to order. Tip him well!

    Their namesake cocktail tastes weirdly like pizza? All other cocktails spot on--one seasonal drink featuring tequila, black strap rum, and cinnamon is AMAZING, don't sleep on it.

    Fall 2015 WSJ article - "Shaolin Land, a complex drink that combines baijiu with other exotic spirits, including an Italian myrtle berry liqueur, as part of a fall menu revamp."

    An elegant spot with a mahogany bar. Connoisseurs will find 50 wines and 40 cheeses available making for supreme wine and cheese pairings.

    The bartender is awesome! He let me sample and sample until I found the right drink for me. Oh, and they've got sorrel liquer! WTF!! :)))

    Though the menu is smaller, cocktails at JakeWalk are just about as good as the ones at Clover Club and better than Brooklyn Social

    Intimate, cozy place. Great date spot. Fondue for two $16.

    Great spot to come for a drink or a glass of wine and unwind before strolling down Smith St in search of dinner.

    Thoroughly irritated. My liter of sparkling water came frozen and the asparagus salad has 8 one inch stems in it for $11. It's really a mesclun salad with some Pecorino. 3 strikes you're out? Try 2.

    Best place to get an old-fashioned cocktail, or just an old-fashioned. Bartenders play amazing music too - like the Harlem Shakes (deep cut!)

    Bartender makes good bespoke cocktails. Just give him a theme and he'll make something good and interesting

    The fondue is awesome, but you will always always always need extra bread. Also, the spicy cucumber dish was amazing, as is the beet salad.

    The local cheesemonger and wine bar owner teamed up to open the Prohibition-themed spot, beloved for share-friendly fondue and bartenders’ choice cocktails that rarely disappoint.

    Great selection of American microbrews and some amazing small plates to go with them. The roasted shishoto peppers are tough to beat.

    Order a Mostly Harmless. Not on the menu: tequila, agave, absinthe, cucumber. Incredibly incredibly refreshing.

    If you're looking for excellently executed drinks, this is the place for you. I've had the best sazerac ever here!

    Try the rye/cognac-based Blood, Lust and Diamonds cocktail. Sounds like a Lorde song, tastes awesome.

    I ordered the cheese plate to go with my wine, because I think they go together like peanut butter and jelly -- but the real star of the show was the pickle plate. No one makes pickled beets this good

    Good spot for a cocktail. Usually pretty low-key, but nice.

    Roasted shishoto peppers are amazing. Just don't knock your wine onto a Real Housewife of NYC....oops.

    Solid Old Fashioned -- I modeled my version of the drink off of the one here + the one at Jack the Horse Tavern

    Try the fondue and ask one of the great bartenders (Eddie, Jeremy, Ari or Matt) for a wine or drink suggestion. They will never steer you wrong!

    A short menu of great little plates and then... amazing cheeses. Wines by the glass are terrific and they have good specialty cocktails.

    If you can handle a little heat, order a plate of the roasted shishoto peppers w/ sea salt. So good.

    I have never been blown away by the service. One time I ordered a seltzer and the bartender just slammed the can on the bar and tossed it in my direction. I will not be going back here ever again.

    Have a cocktail here and then go across the street to Kittery for some lobster. Be the date night king.

    really great bar to chill out and hang with your friends. It's quieter then most bar so you can actually have a conversation.
