    Great bar, has a good mix of people. Can get a little crowded and loud in the front but the back is usually better. Also try a Blood Stream just for fun.

    If you're ordering food with a friend order together so you get served at the same time. Otherwise one person will end up waiting a long time while the other person is finished with their food.

    Sneaky great brunch with boozy cocktails to waste away a weekend day with. Breakfast sandwich with bacon, egg, cheese, and roast tomato on a croissant. Sausage gravy egg and biscuits. Coma.

    Good ambiance, not too loud. Drinks are casual but tasty, do the job. The hot toddy was pretty good. The fried chickpeas were a plus too.

    After you've downed one too many boozy slushies, it's nice to know this cozy but stylish bar has some everyday edibles. Get the spicy fried chickpeas ($5), or the cayenne and salt, duck wings ($12). Read more
