    Worth the wait. Make sure to ask for a table when you get in. Also, free pretzels if you ask for them.

    This is a bar for grown-ups. The music is subdued, the crowd is well-dressed and well-behaved, the staff is polite, the original drinks are masterfully crafted by the mixologists behind the counter.

    Amazing mixologists behind the bar. Not sure what you want? Just ask your waiter / waitress and they'll recommend something that doesn't disappoint.

    this place is an awesome date spot, but definitely not somewhere to come if you're looking for a lively Fri/Sat night. drink prices are also outrageous.

    I have two favorite things about this place: the tightly squeezed in jazz trio and the custom made piece of ice for each drink. I don't like the queue that builds outside the door, it's an eyesore.

    Takes 3 days of slow freezing in a $6k Clinebell machine to make the crystal clear ice here, 2 hours of prep for the ice alone goes into each shift. Respect!

    I just tell the bartender what I like and they typically whip up something ridiculously good. Small space so can get really crowded.

    It's a super intimate, darkly lit, great place to bring a date. As long the bartender knows your drink preferences, it's very, very difficult to go wrong with the bartender's choice.

    Nice to go to, but too troublesome to be a regular deal. But trust the bartenders, and admire their ice carving abilities!

    Come on a weekday, not too late, and snag a table. Bring lots of cash and let the night slip into a hazy, jazz filled euphoria. Tell your boss you'll be a bit late in the morning.

    Feels like a 1920 bar in a basement. Little branch was excellent a couple years ago, but quality of drinks has gone down recently... If you want SERIOUS good cocktails, try milk & honey (same owner)!
