In the members only room I was fortunate to come across an experimental drink the bartender (Kate) was working on. It gas fast become my favorite. Cucumber, vodka, and other goodies. Such a special place. Check it out if you enjoy a members only place.

We stopped by here for dinner after a day of seeing the sites of Temecula. I had the chili verde burrito and my wife had the Mexican mice and tortilla soup. All dishes were delicious although mice are only for those who like things spicy....More

This place has a bad smell...can't tell if its sewage or just drunkard byproducts near the rest rooms.

While waiting for a lunch table at a different location, we stopped on here for a drink. Fast service, good variety of drinks - nice beers and margaritas.
