    The heat is unbearable even in the winter. Which sucks because it's a great spot for dancing. :(

    This place is literally airless!! You go in and you can't even breathe ! Too many people without AC probably! We had to leave the place immediately.

    We all know bars can get hot, but The Del Monte Speakeasy can feel like a sauna with its low ceilings and usually packed house. Leave the jacket at home. Read more

    The boozy sunkist, not a Ryan (ToHo's best bartender's) shot, but it will do cause all the drinks he makes are made with perfection. Tasty!

    The DJ upstairs on Fridays is Awesome. He mixes classic funk/soul with modern indie tracks. His way of transitioning between genres while still keeping the mix fluid is impressive.
