The cocktails are hit or miss, but always strong. The bartenders are skilled and efficient. James at the door is very polite despite having a hard job. The music was hard rock on Friday night.
One of the great cocktail bars you will ever visit and well worth the wait if there is one. They don't let in any more people than there are seats, so the vibe is always great and the service superb
Everyone and everything was amazing. Great spot for really well made cocktails.
The Cadmean Victory. So smooth, you wanna drink it in one swig. Careful though!
Very chill, very well curated place
Come here for great cocktails in a cozy setting.
Doesn't have a cool secret entrance, but it does have great drinks.
You can't go wrong with the bartender's choice. Just be sure you know your "flavor profile."
Rum punch bowls great for groups
Pretty damn good. Their book on cocktails is a standard tome in most good cocktail bars
Share a punch bowl
First dates & small plates. Fancy cocktails are ridiculous: get the Cure For Pain and Rita Hayworth. Food rundown: tuna tartare, truffle mac, filet, lobster brioche rolls, mushroom tart. Infatuation
Bad service from host and waitresses. Drinks are sub par.
Sit at the bar! Ask for recommendations from the bartender. The only downside is that the kerosene lamps made me feel bit dizzy but maybe that's just from the delicious cocktails.
Quintessential speakeasy — long waits, pricey drinks, dark interior. Feels more like a winter spot (read: it has no windows) for a date than anything else.
An exemplary cocktail bar if there ever was one. They've set the standard since 2006 and it's clear why. Drink, drink, & be merry here, regardless of your preferences.
Drinks are good, not great. Vibe is lively speakeasy. Crowd is whoever will wait (often A-Cityers). A/C is lacking in the summer. There are better cocktail spots, but D&C deserves its rep and history
Come at the right time (e.g., Sunday at 6pm) and you won't have to wait.
Highly rated but drinks have always seemed sweet and single-noted to me. There are better, less heralded spots in the neighborhood.
The cocktails are good
The drinks are all expertly mixed. The use of all their esoteric ingredients will make your head spin, but one sip and you'll understand the difference between a bartender and a mixologist. Excellent.
Great selection of inventive, tasty cocktails. The Fistful of Dollars and Beach Goth were both very good.
Choice of all the standard cocktails, some classics resurrected or reinvented, and their own concoctions.
Be prepared to wait, but the cocktails are worth it! Their whiskey section is to die for.
Like gin? Try the Paper Tiger? Like more gin? Try Electric Alice. That minx. Drinkable orgasms.
Bartender's choice is always best. Describe your desired flavor profile and spirit and you will get the drinks of your dreams.
Relaxed vibe, very knowledgeable and experienced bartenders, creatively complex and delicious cocktails with different bases... Great date place
Lots of seating, great decor, and one of the best cocktail menus in the city.
Sit at the bar!
Ask the bartender for whatever you're in the mood for and he'll deliver beyond your expectations!
Sweet sweet cocktails.
This place knows it's cocktails. The entire atmosphere is fantastic. Be sure not to miss the Oaxaca Old Fashioned.
Everything is good here. Worth the 1-2 hour wait on a Saturday night.
Make a reservation..
The cocktails are exceptional. Worth being put on the wait list and coming back for the experience.
Fun atmosphere. Wait staff not terribly versed in cocktail craft unfortunately. Mediocre scotch/whisky/bourbon selection.
Fantastic cocktails, can't be passed over. Look out for the lack of a double door set up. Brutal draft every time someone enters or exits in the winter.
A bit disappointing but I had a good time. There are other speakeasies with better service
Get a a good cocktail, see where the night takes you.
Great spot. Once again I go with whatever the bartender recommends!
Oaxaca Old Fashioned, order it. Enjoy
