    Check out the cash only, menu-free bar at the back. It's worth the wait - you'll get a made-to-order, once-in-a-lifetime cocktail. Even with the same descriptors, I never get the same drink twice!

    A friend described this place as "where the Twitter kids go to spend their IPO money"... tho cheap compared to NYC cocktails IMHO. The "Informant" was best drink I tried.

    The bartender at the back is truly phenomenal. He made a "breakfast" cocktail of egg yolk, tabasco, pumpkin puree, and other unidentifiable things. It tasted good too

    Absolutely check out the cash only bar serving up custom, one of a kind drinks based on whatever the bartender thinks you'll like. A very fun experience.

    Great great place! Seasonal cocktails. Semi-private custom cocktail bar in the back (FYI cash only) for $16 each. You won't regret it. Otherwise the Witch Doctor is awesome.

    I don't post comments when I really like a place for fear of it getting too popular, but Joey and SRO deserve every good word I can write. He's genuine and his drinks are legit. Best. Staff. Ever. 💚

    Incredibly cool space and great (though extra-pricey) cocktails featuring lots of interesting infusions. Check out the "Corpse Reviver Machine" a bizarre mechanical drink-making device at the bar.

    Love this chill bar, nice vibe, and great cocktails. Bartender was playing some legit 90s jams, made it fun to sit at the long bar, good energy!

    In addition to a thoughtful, well-executed cocktail list, this is a bar with space to hang and even a smaller back room if you want a more private party feel for your Secret Santa gift exchange. Read more

    While I prefer SRO in the back, Oddjob's cocktails are cheaper and quicker while still being tasty. Bring your friends to the "photobooth" on the way to the bathroom and hit that big red button.

    Experiential Cocktails are fabulous! Giggs is the man and managed to recreate the experience of cycling on a warm day with a lovely breeze... in a drink!

    My dude Giggs will make you a drink based on how your day went - $16 for the most bespoke cocktail you’ve ever had.

    Staff is so friendly and the cocktails are delicious and inventive. If you're lacking the $$ for inventive be sure to ask about the $5 cocktail special of the day!

    Great atmosphere, good beers, expensive mixologist. Fun decor, steampunk inspired whiskey chiller that is as much a piece of art as functional and cool.

    Awesome bar! Love the fancy cocktails at the bar on the left, where there's no menu and the bar tender will concoct something just for you.

    This bar is a pretty great find for the area with good but pricy cocktails. But CASH only for an $80 tab? Joey might make good drinks, but get a tip from your clientele (Twitter) and get Square.

    The fellows who brought you BIG, Public Works, and Jones have teamed up with carpenter extraordinaire, Eli Spear, to launch the newest venture in the Mid-Market High Tech Gulch.

    They got rid of their extensive mocktail menu, which was one of the reasons we liked bringing groups here.

    Plus Plus is the "Big"-esque bar in the back. Just as good if not better for custom cocktails. Ask for Joey.

    Don't come in late, the regulars will be upset that you've taken their bartender's attention away from them. Shame on you.

    Over-priced. A bit pretentious. Bartenders weren’t outright rude but they weren’t friendly either. I probably won’t go back
