Great craft cocktails, service, and outdoor seating (with heaters, if needed) in downtown Boston. Worth a visit to see your friends and view downtown Boston and the waterfront. Lots of room for small or large parties.

Went for some noonish cocktails. After a strict security check, we went up to the roof which had an amazing view over Boston's downtown skyscrapers. Service was friendly and they had a nice selection of drinks and cocktails. Great place !

We were meeting people on business so we got some drinks on the outdoor bar/patio. Don't charge people $14 for a drink that comes in a plastic martini glass or if they know what they're doing they won't return, regardless of the view.
