    I didn't know what to order so i told them that i like vodka, strawberries and raspberries and they made one up on the spot that was absolutely delicious.  It's nice not to have to rely on a bar menu!

    Snag a seat at the bar, listen to live jazz, and try the Moonraker made with cognac, peach, and absinthe, or put fate into the hands of the mixologist with the Barkeep’s Whimsy.
