Foursquare Tips

  • If you don't feel like guessing where the door is out of the bazillion doorknobs in the entry way, ask the door guy for help.
  • Try old money if you enjoy scotch
  • Ktown's got speakeasy-style drinking (R Bar, anyone?). Lock & Key now has food service (that's rumored to be pretty good), so that puts it at the top of the list for us.
  • Great music, great drinks,great people
  • Men's bathroom is the one down the hall.
  • As long as you're not looking to every actually get anything to drink, you should be fine.
  • Busy late night crowd, good seems good, drinks are good, parking is tough
  • The doorknob to the far right will lead you into the bar (not telling you the exact one though...)
  • Get Lust and Strawberry Mule was fantastic here!
  • The door guy is a cutie
  • Wasn't excited about the required bottle service or $250 punch bowl purchase on Sunday at 5pm for outside tables... But nice ambience and good drinks. Hostess was very "L.A.". Great low key spot
  • Its only jammin if DJ LADY SHA is on the ones & twos!!
  • Ladies, wear shoes you aren't afraid to be standing around in. There aren't many seats outside. Also, don't do what I did (wear stiletto heels) because the planks outside will trap your heels.
  • Ruben is awesome!
  • If you don't know what to drink ...ask the bartender to make u one..
  • Dress code is bizarre: they'll freak out if you wear a hat but allow cargo shorts?
  • Go through the front door... and then figure out which doorknob to turn to ACTUALLY get in.
  • Amazing speakeasy bar with great drinks and staff! Love the ambience as well!
  • Very fun. Great moscow mules.
  • The wings and the pb & j fried sandwhich are a must!!
