Service
 
A "semi-speakeasy" behind a semi-hidden entrance, this "sceney" but "relaxed" West Villager ranks among the "all-time favorites" for "phenomenal cocktails" via "bartenders who treat their craft as an art" ; since it "tends to get packed" , those in the know employ it as a "late-night alternative."

Great cocktails. Order the lady blush, but they change the recipe recently. Friendly staff. Go on a quiet happy hour Monday through Thursday. It gets very full Friday through Sunday, but the crowd is much less cool than they would like to think. Go for a good cocktail with bartenders who know what they are doing.

Came here for drinks with the girlfriend. Dressy place and it's incredibly crowded so good luck finding a seat / not being pushed up against someone (it's like being in the middle of a dance floor at a Club)... BUT the staff are nice and the mixed drinks were really good.

SUPER packed place. Difficult to enjoy yourself if you're at or near the crowded bar, however, my friends and I were lucky enough to get a table (it was a tiny one but good enough for us). We snacked on a few items which were fine (nothing outstanding) and ordered a few drinks. I must say, the cocktails were AMAZING!! 1 drink eventually became 5. "Amelia" was definitely my favourite out of all the ones I tried. We ended up having a great time chatting with each other and even made friends with the table next to us. Apparently we were having TOO MUCH of a great time as the table behind us asked us to quiet down. Hah! You're at a BAR for crying out loud. If you wanted quiet maybe you should head on down to the library. All-in-all fun place to have amazing drinks!
