My husband and I came here on a Monday evening and every seat was taken at the bar; most tables in the adjacent areas were also taken. We sat at a small table just next to the bar and waited for service... And waited. Finally, two seats opened at the bar so we jumped to take them! After that, we had great service from the two bartenders and stayed for a few hours. Ask for the snack mix - it's delicious!

Get there early, grab a seat at the bar. Make friends and enjoy an amazing cocktail and look up and snap a great photo of yourself in the mirror!

We arrived at 10:50 am...and were able to grab two seats when the doors opened at 11:00 am. The whole bar filled up instantly! Most people seemed to stay for one or two drinks and then head out, so people who arrived later were still able to get a seat. You may not get a seat the second that you walk in, but if you wait a few minutes, it seemed like seats would open up.

The bar tenders were very friendly and the drinks were tasty. I'm glad that I was able to experience this bar. I was here during the day on a Thursday...so the patrons were dressed very casually.

When we got there it was pretty, but even though it was only slightly crowded we couldn't get the attention of the bartenders from behind the people seated at the bar. I noticed other people having problems with this as well. So we eventually left.

Beautiful old hotel with a very interesting bar. Specialty cocktails are delicious. the live music was entertaining, but it is very crowded and not enough staff for the number of people there.
