    Took our son there for his 21st Birthday. Cannot imagine a better introduction to the bar scene than setting the bar high right out of the gate. Jeremy is a fantastic bartender - excellent libations!!

    Ask Charles and Dan for a Moscow Mule. But if you try to steal their copper mug, I will personally come after you and beat you to death with it.

    Make sure to watch the mixologists creat your cocktail! It's a work of art!

    @micheal your tip is a shit sandwich. It's a wine bar, not a sports bar. Try the Winfield if you want to meet tools like yourself and watch tv.

    Easily one of the best cocktail bars in Rochester. Quality ingredients,passionate attention to making the cocktail correctly but still pretty fast. Great combination

    Get the baguette sandwich. It's $5, delicious and will save you after one too many proper cocktails.

    Great atmosphere downstairs at the bar. Good wine selection, not a lot of sweet wines (outside of dessert wines) but you can taste before you commit. Cheese board was fantastic!

    Awesome place to go with a good friend. Get a bottle of wine and a cheese plate and give yourself a few hours.
