This little gem is such a throwback to another era it's hard to believe it still exists -- and has a delightful and current menu to boot. It is comfortable, dark and serves delicious appetizers like the Croque Monsieur, which is so rich and savory it's enough for two. Great service that is attentive but not too familar. A wonderful place to catch up with friends.

please see my review for the Drake Hotel. The service, entertainment, drinks are outstanding here. Space is limited so don't be too tardy on weekend nights.

Its dark, warm decor, generous pours and moderate noise levels are ideal as a pre dinner or late night spot to relax and visit with friends. Appetizers were very good; we did not have dinner there.

We were staying that the Drake and the reviews looked ok - so we went in for the advertised music and a nightcap. I don't know if the other reviewers where in the same place - it was such a cliche.

Start with the music - guy in a old tux looking over the shoulder of a mediocre piano player singing songs from 50's and and early 60's. If you love Bert Baccarat and Harry Como, you would love this place. The energy and clientele of the room matched - assisted living on a Saturday night. It was a Holiday Inn time machine to 1960 with out the cool people we see on Mad Men.

Now let's talk the service - lol, took 15 minutes to get a drink, and we were sitting at the bar; they were doing a shift change inventory (9PM?) and really didn't have time to get customers anything.

Now let's talk the stingy drinks: ordered a Sambuca and wife had a beer (12 oz) - my pour was exactly 1 shot - very accurately measured and wife had a local beer off tap. Bill was $23.42 - yes folks that is a small beer and shot for over $20.00.

Unless you are 70, don't care about the service and money is no option, I would avoid this place
