    Great atmosphere and drinks. Killer salsa band playing live on a Sunday night. Crowd is a live one. No complaints.

    Lychee martini happy hours are the best. Pretty good tapas to go with.

    Once you come here, you will never go anywhere else. Best Bloody Mary on the planet. Culinary genius meets ideal atmosphere.

    What can I say "lychee martini anyone". The lychee martinis are awesome couple with happy hour until 10pm. The atmosphere and people are cool.

    The drinks seemed subpar but we also didn't get the seemingly popular lychee martini. Definitely going to give this place another chance later

    The south-east Asian inspired small plates and tapas are great for earlier in the night when the crowd isn’t so busy, but are all flavorsome & delicious cocktail bites. Read more

    Happy hour drinks pack a nice punch....a bit on the cozy side does get packed during happy hour but that's to be expected. Delicious appetizers.

    Really good Lychee Martinis. If you have a large party (i.e., more than 4) and want to sit in the lounge area, make reservations in advanced as they are always reserved.

    $6 lychee martinis, sangria, and wine during happy hour from 5-10pm. Make reservations to ensure you get a table!

    Best Lychee martini in NYC. Happy hour is insane so get there early. And don't leave without trying the fried ginger wings!

    Those 5$ lychee martinis!!! By the time me and my friends ordered 4th round I realized I loved it so much not because of the drink itself but because of the fruit! Lol. Cocktail itself is good too)

    $5 lychee martinis during happy hour are so bomb, but seating was a little tight.

    Great lychee martinis and atmosphere if you're willing to put up with the slowest service ever :)

    Great lychee martini for $5, but not enough seats to sit or hang out. Can't really count it as a "lounge".

    The chicken satay & spicy chicken dumplings are great...the calamari is a southeast Asian take on the traditional Italian app but is really good as well. Happy hour is 'til 10pm so that's a plus too!

    $5 Lychee Martinis... These have to be the best ones in NYC. As well as the cheapest.

    It's a tiny place. If coming with a huge crowd, make a reservation. If not, watch out for waiters glaring at you. The lychee martinis are STRONG. 1-3 will leave you better than good.

    Keith is a doll, very attentive and sweet. But, if you're here on a Saturday ask for Xavier. Call him "The lawn mower" to see how he reacts.

    if you like sugary drinks, lychee martini is good. if you like wine, the $5 house wine at happy hour is good.

    Come in, relax & have a $4 Lychee Martini. If you're here that's your drink & you're looking to have a few. The food here is weak but the happy hour deals are extensive so you won't notice.

    Really nice martini bar in a great area. It's nice and big but one of the waitresses is kind of a shrew. The bartenders are cool though. Tip: Go to the bar and get your own drink, service is slow

    Half price martinis and apps during happy hour! Just beware, it gets really crowded.
