  • went here with my boyfriend on a Saturday night. Service and drinks were fantastic, but music is what made us stay. The atmosphere is so much fun and I would highly recommend this spot for a fun night...  more »

  • What an awesome place. The staff are the entertainment and take turns. Your server is bringing you drinks one minute and on stage the next. Very very talented people, all trying to make it and be discovered. Food is absolutely amazing. Definitely worth the visit. Would love to go back, some day.
  • Wow!! This place is such a delight! Thursday night they were doing karaoke with a very skilled and comical pianist. The servers perform while moving drinks, and will go up on stage and boy are they talented! Really everyone who went on stage had amazing voices and stage presence. They have it all: great music and talent, comedy, drama, comfortable safe atmosphere, friendly patrons and, of course, stiff drinks. Must see!
