Terrible. Last Friday we went to the bar for a drink. After more than half an hour no one noticed us and did not ask what we wanted to order. Never ever!!!

We stumbled across this pub on our way to the Jewish district. Quirky absynt drinks with old fashioned apparatus. Fab novelty. Drinks were very reasonable fab atmosphere and we stopped there for a couple of drinks each night we there. Highly recommend this place.
