We took advantage of the nightly happy hour here, and really enjoyed our visit. Maybe our favorite was the Chip & Dale sour, which was an extra tasty version of a whisky sour. Also enjoyed the Tigre Thai Collins and the Jerky Lab Jack, both...More

Feels like a 1920's gin joint; makes amazing cocktails. Take time to read the whole menu. Decor is cool, service good. Even presentation is awesome, a cocktail made w Jack and honey came in a tiny ceramic beehive. Loved it.
