This place is just about everything I need after a busy week on a Friday night.

Great atmosphere - check.

It's hip and funky, but not overdone. The colorful scheme, comfortable couches tucked away in little hippie 'caravans' and the fun, but not intrusive music altogether made me feel as if I had been transported from a bleak London afternoon into a lovely bar by the beach.
