    Not sure the view is really worth the prices you pay for the drinks...

    Drinks and food were fantastic. I just wish the atmosphere was a bit less stuffy.

    Don't bother wit this place. It has terrible service and mediocre drinks. If you are looking for dancing and a good time you would be much better served to go to the Underground or Paris Club

    An up-top colorful bar will make for a relaxing, summertime experience. It will get crowded in a hurry, but there is a reason for that. It's a place to experience. Whiskey drinks hit the spot here.
