  • Critic Tom Sietsema's first bite: Get the quartet of steamed shrimp/pork belly dumplings for $6. A Sazerac fan probably will do a double-take when he spots the classic being poured for $8.
  • Sit outside. The 80s Old Fashion and Fried Eggplant Balls are incredible
  • Amazing happy hour where you can get fantastic cocktails, like a Sazerac, for just $5!
  • One of the best crafted-cocktail lists in the city. Nothing on the menu will disappoint you... amazing.
  • The tiki tap drinks are strong and delicious. The shrimp and belly dumplings are worth your time.
  • Suffering bastard on tap
  • The bar area is pretty small but has a great vibe. Definitely going back! The orange crushes are delicious :)
  • Great cocktails and delicious food. Monday HH is amazing. This places fills up quickly so you can't always find a spot by the bar and waiting for a table can take a while.
  • Mark the waiter is so hot!!
  • The Stepdad drink: requires blowtorch to create. Must try!
  • Very interesting cocktails, tiki drinks, lovely fenced patio and yummy small plates - fried eggplant balls were amazing.
  • Like sushi in a glass, but with booze, the Jiro Dreams of Sidebar is a combo of housemade wasabi syrup, ginger, Shochu, and rice wine vinegar that's garnished w/ nori.
  • $6.50 cocktails during happy hour!
  • Great cocktail list and super cute space
  • Cocktails and mood
  • Monday Happy Hour. Draft cocktails. Trust me.
  • Loved the Bloody Mary!
  • They got some finger lickin' good Korean-style Chicken Wings, fried and tossed in a sweet and spicy Korean bbq sauce and served with radish, peanuts, cilantro, & kewpie mayo.
  • We never pass on the opportunity to order a giant pretzel, and neither should you, especially one served with truffle cheese sauce & beer mustard!
  • Start off with the epic Catalan Fries made with chimichurri, romesco, cheese, and a fried egg!
