  • This place is a must see if you love authentic and historical places to visit. A true speakeasy feel. The cocktails were very yummy. Very small place, dimly lit and is truly an exciting experience. We got to see two acts. The first one was a juggler and the second a burlesque dancer. Highly recommend.
  • Such a unique and special place. This is the speakeasy for those who want something far off the beaten path. Winnie was the host the night we went and she was accommodating and knowledgeable. Can’t wait to experience it again.
