Nice place to hang and chill after a hard days work. Would recommend to anyone who want to enjoy the night in luxury

Visited here for the first time in many years and had such a blast. The drinks were amazing as always, the popcorn chicken bites were delicious and we also scored happy hour deals! I do think we may have been over charged, or our happy hour didn't apply to our bill, but nonetheless my friend and I had a great time and some good chats with the waiter/manager. Will be back very soon.

We went here on a recommendation. We sat upstairs and had a couple of cocktails, plenty of drinks available to choose from And the service was good. It did get much busier as the night progressed with plenty of young people. We had a good time but there are better places around but just depends on what sort of atmosphere you are looking for.

Really impressed! Service and quality of product was unmatched! Was a bit suprised at the choice of pop 2010 hits playing the whole evening, but it really created a fun atmosphere which was a fun suprise!

Cocktails here were very inventive; one of the best I've had had anywhere. The food was good quality with focus on flavor. I should be so lucky to find something like this in the New York area where I live. Was there early on a Thursday night so it was pretty quiet.

Great cocktails and experience, very nice for a once off special occasion visit. Will not go there often as it is very overpriced and small serving sizes.

The one in the skull is literally the best cocktail I ever have had and the popcorn chicken is out of this world. Such a fun experience and the service was phenomenal.
