Mythical bar , where Lemmy Kilmister would hang out. Him and many other artists as a matter of fact. Nice terrace. That restaurant holds a mystical energy , if only walls could talk. Didn't have the chance to eat there but it looks like that...More

Let's start off by saying the food is amazing ! It's so consistent and flavorful ! We go often and have tried all menu items . It's not just the food it's the atmosphere and service as well that give it a high mark

My partner and I had been recommended to visit because of the history of the bar. However, particularly given all of the hype, we were unimpressed. Parking is $10 - some guys smoking out the front of the bar offer a 'valet service' and drive...More
