    This spot is very hit or miss. If you see a cowboy with a guitar DJing, leave ASAP. If you hear current Hip-Hop, stick around and it'll be a good time. Crowd skews towards late 20's early 30's

    Mitchell is smoother than Sean Connery, massaging ur feet, listening 2 Smooth Night Jazz 4 while wearing a velvet cod piece and speaking 2 U with a Parisian inflection. His drinks are also delicious

    Little known fact - there's an entire back room to this place that's usually empty and chill for after work drinks. (You might get booted for a birthday party)

    The bartender with glasses is a real asshole. Overcharged 30$ and threw a fit and started cursing when I asked him to correct it. He was super shitty- both times I've been there they're understaffed

    Great bar with an awesome mix of *ss shaking music, but not for the claustrophobic on a wknd night. Reserve a space if you plan on wanting room to breathe.

    Good spot to grab a drink. Not the best beer selection (nothing on draft) but it's quiet and far less crowded than anything else on the block.

    They sure make some good Dark & Stormys. But if that's not your jam, they've got a great happy hour on drafts, wine and other cocktails until 8pm.
