    My friend was visiting in town and according to my research this was ranked top 6 cocktail bar in the world. The wait was around 1 hr on a sat night, the drinks are pretty strong but not top 6 quality

    Better when it's not slammed, a great place to drop by early and often. But... That said, just go when you can!

    Cocktails Are fantastic. Try the swagger. They also have an $1100 cocktail for those feeling themselves that night (but not likely in the morning)

    So far we've had the Pork Belly Sliders, the Flank Steak Succotash, and the Chicken Pesto. The bartenders are fun and make you feel safe to play "roulette" (a fun cocktail option!). Pork loin d'best!
