This place is a once in a life time, must experiment 'bucket list" treat that everyone should do if you appreciate exceptionally concocted drink specials. We shared each other's drinks and marveled at the flavors coming from the menu items.

High drama cocktails. Definitely worth the experience but not an everyday visit. Cocktails were well made and exciting!

The cocktails are amazing and they have a large variety. I also loved the food which was bite sized and very flavorful.

Could two people make a meal out of a trip to The Aviary, or more specifically The Office - or is it more of a before or after kind of spot?

It is more of a before spot. The appis, which are very limited in number, are TINY and expensive. Very cool place though.
