    This place was a cool spot, we knew the drinks would be expensive, and we really enjoyed the vibe in the lounge.

    We enjoyed the vibe of the place! Very intimate especially for a date night. Drinks were beautiful but not much liquor. The truffles and the caramel old bay popcorn was delicious! We wanted to do karaoke but our party wasn’t large enough.

    tldr: it was my birthday and I did NOT enjoy myself I made a reservation for 7:15 and arrived at about 7 to check in. I came in on the 1st floor, didn't see anyone, and went back to the door where the valet told me to check in on the 2nd floor. I went up to the desk in the lobby and the attendant told me I needed to go back down to the 1st floor to check in. I went back downstairs (in heels), paced around for a bit looking for someone to check in with, and finally a guy (who I assume worked there but wasn't in any kind of uniform or anything) told me to just pick a room and get comfortable. I went to room 111 because I liked the number, but immediately noticed the room was on the small side for a party of 5 (it was better suited for 2 or 3). After a few minutes, a woman came into the room and asked if I had a reservation. After all the confusion of checking in and once my guests arrived, we were all cramped in this small room. The microphones were dead and we had to find someone to change the batteries. There's no way to call for service from inside the room, so we had to keep checking to see if someone happened to be walking by. It was very hot in the room even after we were shown how to adjust the thermostat. We kept the door closed, which made it even hotter. The 2 other parties that were booked at the same time did not have their doors closed, so we could hear them singing and laughing loudly over us. I didn't like that folks couldn't order individual cocktails. And the food menu was super limited. I expected a happy birthday sign or at least something with my name on it. I also expected better service overall. I am not happy and would not recommend this place at all.

    Have a great time there, we did Karoke in their rooms. Please note it is not open Karoke like other places you get a private room and it has a fee but it was not too high. Max capacity in the room is 8 so if you have a bigger party you may need to reduce or book elsewhere. Manager was great service was good. There was not a lot on the menu as they do small plates. I would advise eating before or after. Drinks were very good and ambiance was great. Bar room is small which goes with the speak easy theme. Would definitely go back.

    Neighborhood gem for drinks before/after the show at the Meyerhoff. Fun speakeasy vibe- to enter- we had to put a token on the juke box to make the door open-

    B-side was a great experience from how you enter to the great service. The only part I didn’t enjoy was the small dishes available I like to eat when I drink. Need more finger foods to offer

    This hidden bar is fantastic. Staff is amazing and the drinks are to die for. If you are a fan of Tequila a great drink to start with would be the red clay. Keep in mind making a reservation is a must as this bar has very limited seating with no standing room. We had so much fun and will be back.

    This was my second time visiting this cute little place. I enjoyed myself each time. Their unique drink menu is the highlight for me. This go round I tried the whiskey inspired drinks. The bar tender noticed and recommend a beverage that was not on the menu. It was AMAZING. They have a small food menu, but if you're hungry you may want to eat before you arrive. I will definitely be back again.

    Such a cute experience! To enter into the speakeasy, you insert a coin in the jukebox and the wall opens. The B-Side is extremely quaint, but it's such a vibe. It takes some time for your eyes to adjust to the darkness. The music piping through may sound familiar but it's all the music on the b-side of albums. Be sure to eat a meal before as they only have a few appetizers. We ordered the chicharron which was MASSIVE.

    Great speakeasy spot. Quaint in space with great music, and tasty drinks. The best vibe for a small group of friends, couples, or just you alone. Nice positive energy from the crafty mixologist/bartenders.
