Amazing cocktail and champagne selection. Good variety in their food and drink menu. We ordered a glass of Dom and one of their Rye Whiskey's. Great service, outstanding drinks, very elegant and stylish decor and atmosphere. Perfect date night place.

I visited Pops with a group of 3 on a Saturday night. Sat quickly. John, our waiter was very friendly, attentive and knowledgeable. Great opportunity to taste and compare a variety of champagnes by the glass. John suggested ordering tastings of multiple at one time to compare. I had him pick two and I loved both and enjoyed comparing the... More

As we were having a late dinner, near-by, we stopped in for our first visit, and I was impressed by the selection of Champagnes, and sparkling wines. We frequent several "Champagne bars" in the UK and Europe, but this list was impressive. We were only in for a couple of glasses of Champagne, so chose the Gosset Grand Rosé Brut... More

My wife loves Champagne (not sparkling wine), so this is a great venue to visit, and try a glass or a bottle of different Champagnes or Champagne cocktails. They have a small menu, we did not eat, but everything looked great, especially the charcuterie platter. A place will will make sure we visit again when in town!

Pre dinner drinks! The decor, drinks and champagne choice is fantastic! Service, however is abysmal! After being handed the drinks menu, the bartender disappeared, almost 10 minutes later we placed our order. We wanted to order another drink, but the bartenders were too busy chatting, drinking their Starbucks and doing there own thing....... The quickest thing they did was get... More

It's hard to find such a large selection of by-the-glass Champagnes (not sparkling wine). They also have cheaper drink options, and a small selection of appetizers (some excellent, some average). Menus change often. Pleasant space, lots of nearby shopping (Chi's best store, Posh, is just a few doors away). Downstairs jazz bar not as nice as it's windowless. Nowhere near... More

I love Champagne! However, it usually comes by the bottle and no one wants to share. Here, I found balance with my "cocktail and beer" crowd. The beer drinkers had a selection not typically seen, the cocktail hounds were served well, and I was able to try 3 different champagnes of varying price by the glass. ($14-$30) It was such... More

Drinks for most all budgets. Great Bellini. Friendly bartenders who are definitely not overbearing. Great place to chat with friends without excess noise and distractions. Comfortable and cozy. Five $10-20 drinks and bill was about $100.

I went here with a few people for a drink. There are many very interesting mixed drinks, many of which include champagne. Pops also has an extensive list of bubbly, if you are willing to pay for it. Good stuff is certainly not cheap. I would go again for a drink, but probably will stick to the mixed drinks unless... More

We have been countless times for years for the great ambiance, decor, service and of course the bubbly. They have a large assortment of sparkling wines and champagne, there is a Jazz Club in the basement that is very highly rated with a more contemporary jazz style. Small area in the basement maybe holds 100 people and not too loud.... More
