    Dealers Choice resulted in an amazing concotion involving Basil eau de vie and a bunch of other delicious things. Be sure to make reservations in advance.

    I'm visiting from NY and this spot gives mixology bars back home some competition. Gentleman by the name of Trevor makes some very good drinks.

    Don't judge your experience on one drink. We had two bartenders - one was fantastic and one was awful. Don't be afraid to request who and what you want. It's worth it, I promise.

    Woohoo. THE place to be in SD for early drinks. Very small though, call a few days ahead to reserve a spot or be prepared to wait. Also, FYI: 5 ppl/party max.

    You must try this place if you're in San Diego. Awesome atmosphere.

    Text for reservations and get a seat at the bar. The godfather will kill you but it's delicious and you need not drunk anything else.

    Vanessa Vadnal · November 25, 2013
  • Stacy T.

    I asked the bartenders to make something that tasted similar to a pumpkin spice latte. My drink was amazing! Megan and Hayley don't disappoint.

    Probably the coolest place I've ever been for a drink. It's a must-go if you're in San Diego. That is, if you can find it! ;)

    Anthony Smith · September 16, 2013
  • Meghan M.

    If you can't get a res show up early and they might fit you in.

    What an experience... Only way to get a reservation is by texting them, not too difficult on a Wednesday night!

    David Thompson · September 12, 2013
  • John P.

    Try the Fashionably Late - The huge clear ice cube in every drink makes this place one of the best in San Diego.

    John Palmer · September 12, 2013
  • Jenz M.

    Amazing fun! Dealers choice for three rounds and each has been amazing!

    Jenz Merrill · July 19, 2013

    If you don't order a Dealer's Choice, I'll reach through Teh Interwebz and smack you.

    Andrew Roman · May 23, 2013

    What to Order || Dealers Choice: a daring move if you're the picky sort, but this is one of the few places that you should just trust the bartender and taste something different for the first round.

    Nick Cannariato · May 17, 2013
  • Grayson C.

    Push the wall of kegs and don't wear a baseball hat...don't me that guy like me.

    Grayson Chalmers · April 15, 2013
  • Roger M.

    You can only book the reservation through text (and a week ahead of time is recommended). Go for the "dealer's choice" as they'll make a cocktail from whatever liquor you like!

    Roger Ma · December 19, 2012
  • Geo s.

    Just go with dealer's choice. I know you THINK you know what you want best, but just sit back, relax, and let the mixologist do their job...

    Geo s · November 29, 2012
  • kane p.

    Phone number is still good. Manhattan is excellent!

    kane perry · October 31, 2012

    Sundays are the best time to get last-minute reservations, and the Dealer's Choice is a must for something unique!

    Harpreet Malla · October 29, 2012
  • Rachael G.

    Ask for Ryan's secret gin infused with scorpion pepper!

    Rachael Green · October 25, 2012
  • Kristin M.

    Door is a wall of kegs... Try the imperial buck, burning daylight, or la introduccion.

    Kristin M · October 14, 2012
  • Raquel B.

    If you are a vodka drinker, order a Tom Collins. You won't regret it.

    Raquel Buckle · September 3, 2012
  • Kristen E.

    Gordon's Cup is the best

    Kristen Elgo · August 8, 2012
  • Ryan M.

    If you like smoky drinks, try the Flores with mescal.

    Ryan McClarren · July 30, 2012

    Bourbon smash... Check it off

    Blake Robinson · October 15, 2011
  • Jhidekim

    Pro tip: although this is a speak easy (which seems cool) this place is boring and mundane. Plus no beer. Stick to the neighborhood.

    Jhidekim · October 1, 2011
  • Michelle L.

    Be courteous and curious. You won't regret it.
