Hip Kitty has become the Whisper House. A wide open space of booths and tables during the day, it becomes an interesting bar late at night.

Was a fun place while it lasted. A new restaurant is taking its place. Plenty of other bars/restaurants in the immediate vicinity.

Sadly, this club was permanently closed in January 2015. It was great while it lasted, but there is not much more to say.

Do that many people like fondue...especially in boiling water. Not so great! But, there isn't a bad act on the calendar, and there is plenty of free parking. Large college crowd. Very friendly.

This place is a hidden Jewel great music and great fondue. The staff is about as friendly as could want, if you like live music and tasty mixed drinks go to the hip kitty.

Average food, average drinks etc. Nothing too special unless there is a great live band playing...only reason to go back. Everything else was so basic - wouldn't go back for the food or drinks...
