A beautiful luxurious bar with the most friendly staff and some of the best bartenders in the city. The bar experience was amazing and the menu-less offerings were exactly what I was in the mood for. I love how the place feels like you're in an upscale train car. If you're in the mood for an elevated cocktail experience, come take a ride in the C-Suite!

We had a wonderful time celebrating my daughter’s graduation. Service was impeccable and it was easy to talk to the server, who paid attention to detail offering a surprise for the graduate. The food was prepared with care and very flavourful. We will come back again.
