To go is an experience; a step back in time. Give your eyes a chance to adjust to the ambience; it’s dark. Bring cash. It’s all they take. A fun conversation piece of a bar with a storied history. Enjoy any one of their cocktails....More

How I remember my college days, when Dan Burazin would take me to this place for a drink after a night out. Even back then, the "dated" lighting, the cherubs, the fountains made me giggle. It is still that same time warp from the 1950's/early...More

Such a great place to step back in time and enjoy an ice cream drink served with charm! The retro decor and staff make the atmosphere hard to beat. Drinks served with cookies that have Yes, No or Maybe on them so you can ask...More

We where "greeted" by the Drink Nazi (based on Seinfeld's Soup Nazi) telling us that we could not speak once seated and not to walk around with a drink. This place was obviously not interested in serving drinks to a group of 8 adults. I...More

This is a crazy spot. Waitstaff and decor has not changed in 50 years! Wonderful place to go after a show for a dessert drink. Famous for their liquor and ice cream drinks. Homey feel, we got hugs from the waitress on the way out....More

Do you miss ice cream drinks and hearing Frank Sinatra? At Random has you covered. This oh so charming cocktail bar has an extensive menu of cocktails for you to choose from. They do not serve food. You may find yourself standing in line waiting...More

This place is the most fantastic time warp. I cant recommend it enough. If youre a fan of mid-century kitsch this is your mecca. And the drinks are fantastic! DO. NOT. MISS. IT.
