If you are in the city on a Thursday night, this is great little spot for live music and a solid drink. From the minute we walked in, I was immediately drawn in by the vintage vibe, mixed-age crowd, and cool music. People were dressed...More

I was broke when I encountered this place, but I met and chatted with the owner who is a nice gentleman. Inside the club it is lovely, dimly lit with blue lighting with art deco decor.

I felt I walked into a movie set from 'The Shining'. You get transported the second you step into the room. Almost eerie! The bartenders very slowly turn their heads, with their upper bodies slowly following, and nod their motionless faces to acknowledge your entrance...More

A great cocktail bar with an Art Deco theme and special events. The Old Cuban is awesome. There is no TV or juke box at this spot. It's a great place to have a conversation with a smaller group. It's well lit and intimate. It's...More
