“More club than wine bar”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 August 2013

If you are looking for a cozy wine bar where you can talk with friends, this is NOT it. It looks like a fun place with loud music, but was far more cocktail bar than wine bar...

“Terrible experience!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2013

Eight of us walked in for a glass of wine and the place was empty. The bartender was no where in sight and when he did come out he didn't say a word or acknowledge us. We asked for water to start and he served us in dirty glasses. We decided to leave and he laughed in our faces.

“Place is nice, just different for my taste.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2013

Rating is based on the bar alone. Bartenders there are super nice and are quick to make something new for you if you don't like one of their creations. They have some very unique drinks here, as in raw egg drinks, give it a try. Not a bad place, just not my cup of tea.

“Sit back and relax”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2013

The wall is covered in bottles if alcohol; how will the barman ever reach, you think.
But he does, and he produces some unique cocktails, well blended and a pleasure on the palate.
There is a good selection of food too: oyster specials, charcuterie cuts (including elk), cheeses. There is a different special every day.
