This bar is a chic yet cozy oasis in the heart of downtown Bakersfield. The mixologist really knew what he was doing and made up some beautiful cocktails for me. The prices are fair especially for what your getting. This is a great place for after work drinks, a catch up with the girls or a romantic date.

This is a great place to come for a few drinks and appetizers on a nice evening. It is made even better when there is live music. It can get a little chilly in early spring, but they have some nice heaters that will warm you up if you can get a table near them. I love ordering one of... More

We were lured down to the fire and rooftop bar that we could see from our room. The plan was just to have a drink and then hunt down dinner elsewhere but the staff was so friendly and hardworking and we couldn't imagine abandoning our cozy spot by the raging fire so we ordered an artichoke (yum) a skirt steak...

Finally a fun place to go when I am in Bakersfield. My best friend from college is from here, so whenever I go to visit her, I quickly run out of things to do. I have been there a couple of times now and I have thuroughly enjoyed myself everytime. It has such a great atmosphere in there, everyone seems... More

Who has ever heard of having to wait in line after already paying and having drinks inside. I went to the club because it was the newest coolest thing in Bakersfield, or so I thought. We had got to the club at 9:30 hoping to be the crowd and we did. Walked right in payed the $10.00 entrance fee and... More
