    Enchanting candle lit atmosphere in an old historic building. Wed. night was dead here, enjoyed a Last Word gin cocktail with a shot of Cynar. Got a few beers on the house, awesome bartenders!

    Take note, the closing hours are wrong on this app. They close at midnight, not 3am...I learned this the hard way.

    Now that libertine dumbed down their approach this is the best cocktail lounge in the city. Order an old fashioned and thank me later.

    If you love whiskey or bourbon order the Trinidad Sour off the menu. Best drink I've had in a while.

    Great craft cocktails in a classy atmosphere. Yes they're expensive. They shake up an amazing gin martini!

    The cocktails are expensive, but that's to be expected. They have a tasty looking menu as well, and a good selection of beers for those not looking to spend a lot on a cocktail.

    The Harrison Sicilian gives an almond-y twist on the Manhattan. I recommend it if you like Amaretto.

    Cool place. Wish they had music to fit the decor. Dance music and rock doesn't fit the prohibition theme.

    Home of some of the best libations you can find - enjoy exploring their drinks. If that works up your appetite, try the meatball. It's one full pound of deliciousness.

    I love this place and have been coming here since they opened. Make sure you bring your birth certificate, though, because I got hassled for having a fake ID at 26 years old.

    This place is horrible. The drinks are weak, the layout looks like a 2nd grader designed it, the food is crap and the crowd is suspect. This place won't last long.
