Neat place for a pub experience. Wait to be seated. Ordered 2 alcoholic n 2 non alcoholic drinks. The food is just minimum . Chose a cheese platter and an order of nuts n bolts. Seating is a bit uncomfortable for a larger group.

Indeed, the bouncer was somewhat annoying and self-enfatuated. Once past that hurdle, you are in an elegant dark space with simple furniture and a bar. Drinks were excellent and the music, too. I wish there were more comfortable spots to sit, hence 4/5. Will I...More

The location (being in a parking garage, in an old valet office) was creative. Very cozy atmosphere, but with high ceilings, it didn't feel oppressive. Bartenders were on top of their game and made great cocktails- both those on the menu as well as off-menu....More

Garage has a great selection of cocktails....if you are able to find the entrance. The service is great and it provides a nice, intimate setting for conversation.

My wife and I went there to get some cocktails after a show. Menu was expensive, but we figured it would be worth it for a good craft cocktail. We got in and sat at the bar as we enjoy watching our craft cocktails get...More

Nice bar with friendly staffs. The drinks are a tad pricey. The crowds are more matured and classy. Overall it is a cool lounge to hangout and relax.

Loved this place. Awesome concept, cool, low key vibe inside. Dark and small, but really neat. Good mixed drinks. Overall, awesome experience that is worth checking out.

No, it is a pretty casual place. You might see a suit. You might see ripped jeans. You might see plaid shirts. You might see a Hugo Boss shirt.

I would say standard noise level with background music playing. I would also assume it depends on the crowd.
