If you're going for the mixology and the bartenders, this place is 5-star. Excellent martinis and cocktails made with a flair and served in a frozen glass by some of the best bartenders in town! The food, which is served tapas-style, has been going down...More

After a recommendation from our B&B of where to get pre dinner drinks we found our selves really enjoying Bang! We had a few of their delicious martinis. The bartenders, even though they were swamped, we're very attentive.

Low quality ingredients lack freshness & doom novel concepts. Tried previously ~1.5 yr ago and forgot why didn't return. Never again. Lettuce out of a bag, potatoes and soy from can. Freezer burnt tuna sashimi. Artificial flavors in martinis. No thanks.More
