Great cocktails as always. While being seated, asked to sit in a different table and were refused rudely. The experience was great, but the seating/hostess situation is a bit arrogant. Love the place!

Fun tiki bar! The drinks are tasty and strong. Try to make a reservation. The place is not very big and fills up fast.

Honestly had a really good type. If you’re looking for actual meals with a meal, this place might not be the best fit. But if you don’t mind delicious appetizers this place is great. And the drinks are delicious! Will definitively go back to this place!

Super chill, secret tiki club vibe. My mom and I stopped in while visiting the city, and I’m so glad we did. The drink were expertly crafted and delicious and authentic. Each drink we tried had its own story. We loved it!

It's pretty loud, so definitely expect to speak louder than normal. The drinks are really great and fun. Some light on fire and others smoke up. I didn't try the food, so can't say much. But I definitely recommend the drinks.

really fun spot with creative cocktails. Tiki ambiance is fun and lots of variety of cocktails. Some of the drinks in the more subdued glassware are better than those in the funky cups but those are great for a photo.

I absolutely love three dots and a dash and brought my boyfriend for sweetest day. I was incredibly impressed! Catie took care of us and was super accommodating with my dietary restrictions ( I have a super severe peanut allergy) and she took care to make sure everything was perfect and well explained to us. Herself and the three dots team did a fantastic job. Right on the same level as Disney world for their service. Kudos! We will be back!!!!

I celebrated my birthday here with a few friends! Reservations make it so much easier!! If you don’t have a reservation, it makes it hard to get in. Having a table also made the experience better, too. The drinks are AMAZING!!! They didn’t disappoint at all.

Terrible. We paid $40 for a drink that was marketed for 2-3 people...both of us took about 4 sips (if that!) and it was empty. Opened up the fancy container and we paid $40 for basically a pint glass of ice with a small amount of drink in it. Granted the container was super fancy but we got totally ripped off...even for Chicago. Be warned unless you like to waste your money don’t go here.

Been looking forward to going here but the noise level was ridiculous. Could not hardly hear our friends. There’s loud and there was this. We asked them to turn it down or move us (we were in front of a speaker) and they said they’d turn it down but there clearly didn’t. Drinks were great but the noise level means I’ll likely not return. Pops a couple blocks away is way more fun.
