We went to the early Tuesday Jazz and Funk Jam. We had a great time! I love that it was "early" which was 9pm, allowing us to stay 2hrs. My husband and I don't usually stay up late so the timing was perfect. Early enough...More

The musicians were talented. The bartenders were quick and friendly. We loved it. It was a great place for a late night out.

A few months ago I took a big fall on the curb as I was entering. I asked for a few ice cubes to put on my head and was ignored. The place is very overcrowded with an unpleasant stench and nasty bathrooms. The staff...More

Laid back atmosphere, the bad was good, and so was the drinks. The owners seemed very nice. We plan to come back.

We stumbled upon this place for the first time on a weeknight. There's a modest cover charge (worth it), and the place was filled with locals and the odd tourist or two (us), and by 9 p.m. the joint was rolling. It's dark, intimate, New...More

Went out for a bachelorette party and manager was rude to multiple people in our party. Pushing people because you do not feel they are moving fast enough is not appropriate, nor is yelling at patrons. Stating "you should just leave if you aren't happy"...More
