We made reservations before hand, MAKE SURE YOU MAKE RESERVATIONS! They have nice seating areas, drinks were top notch and board games! Music was great, not like a club but lounge music that is up beat. Service was excellent and waitresses were very friendly. I highly recommend.

They did have the reservation but they did not actually reserve a table for us. So we were welcome to come in, but had no particular place to sit. Luckily it was an early reservation and so there were seats at the bar, but what's the point of a reservation that is not a reservation? As far as the place itself, it is a cool speakeasy. The drinks are good. The bartender was skilled. The extremely limited bar menu was well prepared although we had zero access to the upstairs menu, which is unusual.

We didn't have to take her up on it because all the drinks were delicious!! I loved the ambiance - it's a speakeasy so you can imagine what it's like. There are games at every table and we really enjoyed the one we had at ours. We had the avocado toast - yummy!
