Arrived early before they start the live piano music. We sat near the piano and enjoyed the live performance. The service was prompt and courteous. The place is quite popular and the drinks are good, with never ending servings of snacks!

This is the lobby bar of a high end hotel. The place smells of Febreeze, but worse is the music which is always overly loud and the recent acoustic guitar player was often off key. Hard to have a conversation Just turn the volume down...More

The hotel's bar is nicely decorated and the staff is very attentive and quick. Lots of escorts roaming around hunting for rich businessmen. Drink prices are ridiculously expensive. Save your cash, go to another downtown bar.

Stopped in for a drink enjoyed a little piano entertainment. Nice atmosphere, good music, but $40 for a Stella and a Cosmo?
