    This mellow East Village bar has a number of unusual, but very tasty house cocktails. Cocktails are half price from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.

    Stupidest rule I have ever heard in the history of any bar/club ever. Watched a band...tried to use the only bathroom located upstairs and was told I would not be able to go back downstairs.

    Go early for great live music (check the calendar) in a Gatsby-esque locale. Later on with DJ, crowd was very young and fratty. Great drinks and decor.

    Typical "no dudes" / "we have a dress code" bullshit from the guys out front. Won't be coming back; there are plenty of places I can go to with less hassle. Shame because it's actually a nice space.

    $7 for a Heineken + a "DJ" poorly curating a discordant, disorganized and flow-less stream of pop & RB spanning the past decade = not worth your time.

    Surprisingly great happy hour with a great cocktail list. Try the Rum Fashioned made with Goslings, tawny port and bitters. Nice bracing, winter cocktail with just a touch of pirate.
