Balkan style
‘BABA’, meaning Grandmother in Serbian, is a transformative speakeasy cocktail bar, serving top notch mixology concoctions, weekend brunch, Fun Dining and decadent desserts! BABA's name evokes a sense of comfort, nostalgia and being well fed – which we all associate when we think of our grandmothers. The only difference? This BABA is sharp, slightly mischievous, and always the life of the party – she has more energy and spirit than all of us put together.

    Loved everything about this place! It was a little too dark and noisy for my parents, but the food and service made up for that to them! Highly suggest the 5 hour lamb, everything else was great as well but that was exceptional. Drinks were also a hit with our group. For 6 people, we spent around $350. Pricey, but worth it in my opinion.

    Food was great! Mushrooms were definitely a favorite, shrimp was meh though, that’s the one we’d skip next time. Service was helpful. Fun vibe but pretty loud.

    Great brunch! The drinks service was a little slow, they didn’t have enough menus (each table got one menu for everyone at the table), and Ambar and Baba use the same bathrooms (which for the women’s room means 2 stalls for everyone in both restaurants). BUT the food was excellent, the cocktails were delicious, and the decor was really cute. The staff was maybe a bit short-handed, but they were very friendly and solicitous.

    Good place for drinks and small plates. Relatively small area with a speakeasy vibe, and it’s right next to Ambar.
