  • There are flawless standards herea strapping Manhattan, a tingly champagne cocktail fizzing w/ sugar & Angostura bittersbut big-swinging bar talents really come out to play w/ their original drinks.
  • From the guys behind Death & Co., including Joaqun Sim, Tales of the Cocktail 2012 American Bartender of the Year. Featuring everything from Tiki riffs to stirred classics, and the service is tops.
  • A cocktail-lover's cocktail bar, its inventive drinks ranked by how spirit-forward and how experimental they are.
  • Former Violet Hour (Chicago) and Death and Co. crew
  • Henry is the greatest door person thee is. Make sure to talk to him.
  • For a mostly empty bar, an aggressive doorman is anticlimactic.
  • Solid Manhattans, chill vibe, and the bouncer is a gem.
  • They'll make off menu cocktails for you too. Just tell the waitress what you like!
  • Really great non alcoholic drinks! Paint the fence and Fast times!
  • RIP Uncle Ming's
  • In spades. Drink it.
  • Order the spirit of diplomacy and the death & taxes, you won't regret it.
  • The bouncer henry is ridiculous
  • Great cocktails & simple atmosphere (although volume can be loud). Don't be confused by the wait outside - it's their way of doing things. Banter with the bouncer, slow down, and enjoy yourself.
  • Huey Lewis' "Power of Love" is on. That's a good sign.
  • Almost wish this gem could stay hidden, if you appreciate the cocktail, & are willing to pay for it, this dark & private spot is for you, best Old Fashion I've ever had, and waitresses ain't shabby...
  • Cocktails are AMAZING. Highly recommend the Dark + Stormy and Spirit of Diplomacy
  • Good things come to those who fraternize with the doorman.
  • One of the best Old Fashioneds I've ever had. Ever. Moscow Mules are great as well. You really can't go wrong with any drink. These guys are awesome.
  • One of the bartenders made a heavenly mezcal Sazerac (off the menu). Only worth going if you have a bar seat.
