A small nice bar that is a place to come for a good drink on a date or with friends. There is a lovely fireplace area as well when it's chill which is very much was when I visited. A comfortable place to hang out.

We spent over 2 hours here, trying different gins. Our bartender had extensive knowledge of his products and knew exactly what concoctions to mix together and what not to mix together. I would highly recommend this quaint bar with a great atmosphere!!
