    Live jazz music makes the soul soulful and happy. Intimate. Romantic.

    Dim, cozy lighting, and they play live jazz music. It's a struggle to find a seat or comfortable standing area, but if you get one, experience is pretty golden

    The Espresso Martini: the ideal sweet and smooth drink for learning what the words “sweet” and “smooth” mean when in reference to drinks.

    They serve overpriced mediocre cocktails in a divey, dingy place w/ rusty springs sticking out of the seats & a disgusting bathroom. Bad food, bad service, embarrassing to bring friends there.

    I come here when I want to stay in the EV but go to a pretty place with a refined divey feel. Many tables (I can always find a seat here) give this place a plus.

    I didn't know thresh, I did know Rue (B). She wasn't just my ally, she was my friend. I see her in the flowers that grow in the meadow by my house.

    Mostly I come here for the Happy Hour prices but it's got a unique energy for being a mostly red-light lit cocktail bar. And it's small-group themed, so it's lots of small, quirky, fun conversations.

    Very happy happy hour deals that go till 9pm. Half off all drinks, including a variety of good bourbon cocktails. Meatball app was great, esp. at the discounted $6 price. 3 apps perfect for 2 ppl

    I would highly recommend not coming here. It's basically expensive bar food with weak drinks. The jazz music is good, though. Better options down the street.

    Cute little place (only 20 seats or so) with live jazz. About $12 for cocktails, which weren't bad. Go for the atmosphere, which is awesome. Great date place!

    Food is delicious. The only thing that ruined the night were the obnoxiously loud people at the tables next to us.

    Rue B rule of thumb: order something pink. The Strawberry Patch is super good but super sweet. Alternatively, opt for the Mexican Bee Sting.
