Our waitress (Sarah G) was terrific. Chatted about the area and even sat down with us for a minute to learn a bit about us. Insanely rare in a night club. Drinks were good, music was good and the crowd was cool and diverse.

Recently a group of friends went to Garfinkel's for a live reggae show KATCHAFIRE and we all had a great time. The bartenders were unpretentious and kept the booze flowing with quick service. I'll be back again to party!!!

Had an awesome time with an international band in a pub! Getting as close to the artists you could shake their hands. Grab a few friends, have a drink and enjoy! Can't wait for the next gig. Rik O
