This was a great find. We were looking for someplace to have a drink before our dinner reservation nearby and Fox was perfect. It has a really cool vibe with comfortable chairs around a small table that makes for easy conversation. This really is the...More

They have the coolest drinks and great service. You can hang out and talk until dawn. They could use a few more munchies to counteract the liquor buzz but seriously this is a great place to hang.

I've been just a few times over the years, but the atmosphere and drink quality have been consistently good. The drink menu has something for everyone. I tried a frilly-sounding cocktail on this visit and loved it! My friend is a whiskey drinker and was...More
