A little on the expensive side but the service was excellent, meals were fine and the oysters perfect. Good selection of champagnes and wines. Drank a little too much but we were well looked after.

Pops for Champagne never lets me down. It has an incredible variety of champagne and sparkling wine to meet any budget. The staff is always friendly, and the small plate food dishes are scrumptious. It's in the perfect part of town to begin or end your night. It's great fun to grab a table by the window and watch the... More

Amazing cocktail and champagne selection. Good variety in their food and drink menu. We ordered a glass of Dom and one of their Rye Whiskey's. Great service, outstanding drinks, very elegant and stylish decor and atmosphere. Perfect date night place.

I visited Pops with a group of 3 on a Saturday night. Sat quickly. John, our waiter was very friendly, attentive and knowledgeable. Great opportunity to taste and compare a variety of champagnes by the glass. John suggested ordering tastings of multiple at one time to compare. I had him pick two and I loved both and enjoyed comparing the... More

As we were having a late dinner, near-by, we stopped in for our first visit, and I was impressed by the selection of Champagnes, and sparkling wines. We frequent several "Champagne bars" in the UK and Europe, but this list was impressive. We were only in for a couple of glasses of Champagne, so chose the Gosset Grand Rosé Brut... More

My wife loves Champagne (not sparkling wine), so this is a great venue to visit, and try a glass or a bottle of different Champagnes or Champagne cocktails. They have a small menu, we did not eat, but everything looked great, especially the charcuterie platter. A place will will make sure we visit again when in town!

Pre dinner drinks! The decor, drinks and champagne choice is fantastic! Service, however is abysmal! After being handed the drinks menu, the bartender disappeared, almost 10 minutes later we placed our order. We wanted to order another drink, but the bartenders were too busy chatting, drinking their Starbucks and doing there own thing....... The quickest thing they did was get... More

It's hard to find such a large selection of by-the-glass Champagnes (not sparkling wine). They also have cheaper drink options, and a small selection of appetizers (some excellent, some average). Menus change often. Pleasant space, lots of nearby shopping (Chi's best store, Posh, is just a few doors away). Downstairs jazz bar not as nice as it's windowless. Nowhere near... More

I love Champagne! However, it usually comes by the bottle and no one wants to share. Here, I found balance with my "cocktail and beer" crowd. The beer drinkers had a selection not typically seen, the cocktail hounds were served well, and I was able to try 3 different champagnes of varying price by the glass. ($14-$30) It was such... More

Drinks for most all budgets. Great Bellini. Friendly bartenders who are definitely not overbearing. Great place to chat with friends without excess noise and distractions. Comfortable and cozy. Five $10-20 drinks and bill was about $100.
