    Husband and I love speakeasies! This one was a "true" one! Super quiet! The lighting was very dim and intimate. Cocktails were amazing! They had live entertainment and she sang sultry music. Perfect!!

    Once inside, the atmosphere was lackluster and unimpressive, lacking the unique and alluring ambiance that a good speakeasy should have. Cocktails were expensive and uninspired. To make matters worse, the service was slow and inattentive, with long wait times and staff who seemed uninterested in making sure we had a good time. Overall, I would not recommend this speakeasy to anyone looking for a memorable night out, as the experience fell far short of expectations and left us feeling disappointed and unsatisfied.

    Great ambiance! Luxurious and comfortable seating. Noise level was supportive of normal conversation. Bartender was awesome! Wife had 2 new drinks she loved! I enjoyed a whiskey called Iwai. We had the charcuterie board as a snack.

    The drinks ranged from 20$-35$. It was extremely overpriced. The DJ was too loud and we couldn’t hear ourselves think. We left immediately unfortunately.

    A great place that is low key and away from the crowds. Drinks are on the upper end so you need to be prepared to pay. But if you want away from the noise and enjoy a more sophisticated setting, then recommend it!

    VERY cool place with awesome drinks. I'm not a cocktail guy, but these bartenders make some artwork. Way more than I'd like to spend on drinks, but for a special occasion, it was an awesome night.

    We had such a wonderful time at Blackbird Society. The food was spectacular and extremely unique and the cocktails were some of the best I've ever had. I never even knew red wine foam was a thing! My only constructive feedback would be we wish the place was ready by 7pm (wasn't until about 7:15pm) as it didn't feel as speakeasy-ish and blasting rap music the entire time was very strange and didn't set the best ambience given it is a Japanese fusion restaurant. The bartenders and staff were super friendly and a lot of fun to be around. Thank you for a wonderful anniversary date!

    I took my husband here for after dinner drinks for his 50th birthday. The ambiance was lovely, including the music that was playing. The drinks were absolutely delicious. If you want cheap drinks and to get hammered, this isn't for you. This is a place to go and enjoy drinks that are artfully crafted.

    The staff were all very nice and accommodating. I really appreciated the effort to ensure my sisters birthday gathering went well so they are organized and efficient in that sense. The food was very good as well. The service was good however slow which was to be expected with the specialty cocktails that were made. We did have to wait a very long time to close our bill and waters weren’t refilled unless requested. All of it is super subjective so as long as you walk in with the expectation to be patient you will have a great experience. It’s a quiet and somewhat small space which was perfect for our event, felt like a VIP room with your own personal bar tender which was a nice touch. I would recommend for 1-2 drinks, unless you’re a big spender, as the cocktails are >$18 each so we kind of needed to get out of there to be able to keep drinking the way we wanted to lol it’s an excellent place for a fancy first date I think or for a small group special occasion. Overall it was a seamlessly smooth reservation experience and everyone was very nice and the drinks were good. Maybe not $18 good, but again it’s more about the environment and ambiance than anything else which makes the cost understandable.

    Absolutely wonderful place for cocktails and bites. I had read some negative reviews about slow service. All I have to say is every person working there makes your drink or food with the upmost attention to detail. Your drink comes out slower than most bars because they spend 5-6 minutes mixing, straining, torching, and designing your single cocktail. The drinks were what we went for, but the surprise was the variety and quality of the food. Loved this place. Will be back many many times for sure.

    I had the best time at Blackbird. The cocktails were top-notch. The bartenders were knowledgeable, the servers were friendly, and the vibes were good times! I love that they are now open on Wednesdays because it allows me a midweek celebration in the heart of Dallas!
