Hip, Modern and Classy

It is a destination spot, meaning you wouldn't necessarily happen to walk by it, but this bar is excellent! There's a very cool upstairs semi-private loft and the service is great. "You get what you pay for" and although the drinks are a little more than moderately priced, it is well worth it!!

It was very classy place...

It was for my boyfriends birthday, he had no clue where we were going, and he and I are not fans of crowds and loud music. This place was perfect!! It was classy and the atmosphere was ideal. The drinks were tasty and my boyfriend especially enjoyed "The Worlds expensive drink". The bartender was great; I do not have a single complaint. It was a wonderful evening and I would defiantly go back.

Sad.

What a joke. This bar signature drink is "The World Cocktail" which is made with, in part, Remy Martin XO cognac and 24 karat gold." We went there around 9 p.m. and the place was empty. I ordered the "World Cocktail" and the waiter said "ok" and left for several minutes, only to come back and inform me that they were "out of some of the ingredients." Well I had to question what he was out of since this is the signature drink, and he informed me that they were "out of gold" and also "out of Hennessey" which is odd because the drink is advertised as being made with Remy. I ordered something else and it was ok, and the atmosphere was ok, but come on here...did they fall for one of the "We Pay Cash For Your Gold" ads that are popping up everywhere????

Some Hints:

  • The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
