Yes, it is more $$$ than other places, but the tapas and app menu is to die for. The cocktails are impressive and the mood and staff are beautiful. They will make whatever you want from the menu, even at 8am. I adore this place...More

Easy to default to the Spirit House each evening for their cocktails and cold beer laos. Food is good. Easy to meet people. A riverfront no brainer
