Hip haunt for original New American fare

The Zagat Review
“They make a mean martini” at this Federal Hill cocktail den, a “refreshing alternative” to typical watering holes where drinkers “forget their troubles” over “creative cocktails” ; there’s an accompanying menu of “decent” American fare, and the clubby decor stands out thanks to the “beautifully lit bar.”

Typically, I can't say enough about this place! You want a great cocktail or unique menu to enchant your pallet? Make a stop at bookmakers! 1/2 price whiskey Wednesday allows you to try the more expensive Bourbons like Angels Envy at the price for Bulleit. I only gave 4 stars because this particular visit was a bust. The bartenders here tend to be wonderful friendly knowledgeable and accommodating. But we brought in a birthday boy with a party of 9 of us, and this particular bartender always wearing a plaid shirt, made us feel like we were somehow in his way or something... We each had 2+ drinks and while we wanted to continue paying $12 a cocktail (because they are worth it here) we were sick of his attitude every time we tried to put in another order. So it was time to leave. Avoid him and you will be fine. This place has a great vibe intimate setting for a date or small group. Worth the stop

My favorite bar in federal hill. It’s dark and quiet inside. The staff is friendly and know a lot about drinks. I love their fancy cocktail list. There’s always something new. I take all my friends here when they visit.

Awesome atmosphere, not great staff. Made a reservation through open table which was confirmed by the host but was ignored. Got seats at the bar which was nice. When presented with our check the bartender for some reason handed me 3 checks that did not add up to the original check.
