  • Awesome back alley speakeasy style bar with hot flapper dancers and great ambiance.
  • Come here often.
  • Take the elevator to the fifth floor.
  • Flapper dancers and Jimmy Buffet cover band do not mix
  • One of the better places I've been to since moving from Minneapolis. Stayed for the Sinatra, Billie Holliday, and ambiance, left before the cover band. Try the Zelda Fitzgerald- great!
  • Every cocktail is delicious. You can't go wrong!
  • What a great place! Good drinks, friendly staff and good entertainment!
  • The drinks are amazing. I had my first Moscow Mule and it was well done. I thought music could be softer, but other than that, it really captured the 1920s feel.
  • Cocktails have really gone down in quality. I ordered three cocktails and they were almost undrinkeable. One was even remade and still pretty bad. Not sure what happened to this place.
  • I didn't see any flapper dancers, but the man singing and playing the piano was awesome! A great vibe and decent drinks.
  • This is the perfect trending spot where wow factor meets bar service, meets memories. Anyone visiting from out of town they must go! Arrive early for table! Great happy hour foods
  • Fun, but tiny
  • Good cocktails
  • Great cocktails, eye candy waitresses in corsets, and Joe Hite on Thursdays!
  • Congrats to whomever came up with this concept...a true speakeasy!
