Staff is great, Bar is well stacked and the Pros behind the bar know their craftsmanship. On the plus side: they always have an open ear for requests off the menu.

The bar was nice, staff was attentive, and drinks were good. I didn't find the menu overly creative and the location was a bit odd. Overall a solid spot but I much prefer Old Crow when in Zurich

Great bar with delicious drinks. Couldn't decide what to order so gave the bartender some preferences and he created exactly what I was looking for. Great service and good ambiance.

I went there with a friend to have a drink and at the end spent almost the whole night there! The guys behind the Bar know what they are doing and are very gentle! Try the Negroni, one off the best in Town!!

Very similar vibe to Employees Only, a top speakeasy in NYC. My lady had an old fashioned which was on point, I went for a suffering second sister concoction. Solid service though we didn't get around to trying the food. Will be back, a great...More
