We managed a reservation for midnight and it was worth the wait. Small space, nicely lit, very intimate. The cocktails are to die for, really high quality and I tried 1 of the experiments, the monthly changing menu. Overall fantastic experience!

Great atmosphere! So fun going though hidden door. The decor is very cool, with a wall of skulls! And the drinks are phenomenal!!!

Went there for a few drinks and had a great time. The bartenders were friendly and the atmosphere is super special. I did a “bartenders choice” and the drink was amazing...be careful because after 2 you might wobble home! :-)

This bar is absolutely wonderful, some of the best drink I've ever had. They don't have a menu and will make you sth based on what you tell them you like. Perfect fits every time I ordered a drink!

Within Neighborhood Ale House. Once you walk in you have to cross to the back wall. Just ask the staff and they will direct you. Very small. Make reservations.
