My husband and I have been coming here once or twice a year for years. We both agree that it gets better everytime. The sides are AMAZING.

You have to ask for "The Library" to be shown to the private and cozy downstairs room with candles, heavy wood paneling, and the atmosphere of a Prohibition-era speakeasy. It's hidden behind an unmarked door down the hallway past the restrooms. Cool vibes, great bartender,...More
