    Tuesday night happy hour brings $1 oysters and $6 specialty cocktails and rolls right into trivia night where you can win $100 gift certificate. The Tequila Rose was a personal favorite.

    Great live music and intimate location with good food, yet limited menu. If you're lucky like my friend, your oyster will yield two pearls!

    “The cocktails are unfussy and topnotch ... Depending on the evening, you can sip them to the dulcet tones of a live bossa-nova trio or the punchy arrangements of a ragtime pianist.” Read more

    Food is focused on oysters. There are some snazzy bar bites such as beet tarte tatin and Maine-mussels pot pie. Plenty of quaffable cocktails including gin-based Basil Brush & rum in a Coke bottle Read more

    Excellent brunch with a side of gypsy jazz on a Saturday morning. Will definitely be back for brunch again.

    Cocktails are inventive, delicious and well-balanced. The Lady Winser was fresh and bright, and the Wonder Woman was vacation in a drink. Don’t skip the bites (the lamb sliders were to die for)

    Despite the fact my reservation vanished into thin air the staff was great and accomodate my group of 6. Not an easy thing being its so small. Every thing we had was delicious. Can't wait to be back

    Solid cocktails and a great vibe. Benedictine is a favorite. They were playing classic rock on a Saturday night. Sold. Need to come try the happy hour sometime for $1 oysters.

    The Leadbelly specializes in oysters, but it’s really more of a bar. It’s a good spot for dates, but it’s most clutch on a weekend afternoon after checking out some of the art galleries up the block.

    The food was good but not as good as Fat Radish cross the street. mussel pot pie was pretty amazing (and I don't love mussels). Spicy Pineapple cocktail was awesome! Great scene & music.

    Highly recommend Bar Belly for an espresso martini, snacks, and people watching outside. They have live jazz some nights too. Honestly, can’t go wrong here.

    Very cool crowd and great drinks. Go on Tuesdays for their new trivia, a mix of challenging and funny riddles. Crowd gets pretty rowdy at the end so stick around!

    Friendly service and delicious oysters. Wish there were broader options on the happy hour but still great all around. Extra points for the beautiful bathroom!

    The Ledbetter is a fantastic drink. Sweet but interesting, unlike anything I ever had. Oysters are fabulous and the place is very cosy overall.

    $1 Oysters are great! Fav cocktails here are La Lupe and Cloverfield. Was a little disappointed with the espresso martini though.

    Truffle popcorn bar snacks and $1 oysters at happy hour. My fave pick for an early weekday cocktail (pay attention to specials)

    Awesome Oysters! Tip: make a reservation through open table to ensure you have a seat, gets really packed.

    Excellent cocktails and live music to kick off the weekend. Truffle popcorn, beet hummus are nice additions.

    Great cocktails and live music make up for slow service. P.S. They have sliders from Fat Radish when you get hungry.

    Good oysters but come early or they run out! The tartare was good if not a bit salty because of a heavy hand with the capers. The salad was the best dish by far with lots of interesting vegetables

    Attentive bartenders :) try the Grapefruit Bitter Sweet (if you like Aperol) or the Brazilian (mmm Leblon).

    Even if oysters are a $1 they still warrant the dignity of being properly shucked. Filled with bits of shell & grime, these little guys deserve better!

    went there to have drinks at 6pm a Saturday, it's pricey except for the oysters in happy hour. Cocktails were ok, nothing more and no draft beer. No particular good vibes, don't think I'll come back
