Injitially, one thinks a touch of the 80s.The name, velvet rope and doorman suggest a more serious watering hole.
Inside, this triple-decker Lower East Side happy haunt is inviting and very cozy. The colors and decor are warm
and neat with muted cocoa squares, brown banquettes and an illuminated orange panel piping the bar top. Good
looking types and cute couples - stylishly attired, scoff up downstairs, and relax with drinks on the mezzanine.
Usually friendly bartenders take good care of customers mixing favorites like Sidecars and top-shelf margharitas,
along with popular drinks like the Ultimate Libation, a tangy mango mojito mix, and a fresh East Sider, made
with Hendrick's gin, muddled mint, club soda and a cucumber slice. After dinner on weekends, the bar is roomy
but fills up fast, Third floor usually reserved for private parties.
Note: Some customers have posted mixed reviews on other sites about the staff.
