My wife and I were walking by and seen the entry to this place, up steps. We were just curious so we went up for a drink. Each of us had a martini. Very good martini by the way. Service was excellent. Would reccomend.

The atmosphere was just like stepping back into the fifties. Ordered long island iced tea. This was fantastic. It was also happy hour. The only negative would be the couches were dirty.

Ordered boneless wings, they showed up dry and over crispy. We didn't finish them. Waiter tried to automatically keep change from a larger bill, then when we asked for change didn't provide single dollar bills. Wouldn't waste our time returning here

WE LOVE THIS PLACE! Walking into this place is like stepping back in time. One would expect Frank Sinatra to be singing in the corner. Classic lounge with chairs and couches that probably haven't been replaced since the decade they were purchased. Dimly lit atmosphere...More
