Great drinks, great view, great vibe!

I went here for Friday night happy hour recently and was pleasantly surprised with this great addition to Midtown. The drinks were delicious, hand crafted, and reasonably priced ($10-$12 cocktails). The place was packed by 6 pm so we were glad we had arrived just after 5 and were able to get a table overlooking the amazing view of downtown. The crowd was mostly professionals (30s and 40s). The only con was the wait time for drinks after 7 pm - the two bartenders were fabulous but two people can only make drinks so fast!
Bad drinks, poor service

Nice space spoilt by terrible acidic wine and rude staff. The undrinkable wine seemed to come out of a tap - not sure how it was served, as the bar tender filled the wine glass in a secret way beneath the counter but no bottle was involved! The wine was totally undrinkable. Staff were rude when we asked for one of the plastic glasses to be changed because it was dirty - yes, plastic glasses! Full of badly dressed tourists taking photos of each other and everything else. We stayed 10 minutes. Leave it to the tourists.
