The cocktails were delicious. I loved the fun names too. The atmosphere was trendy and hip. Would be a great place to go for drinks.

Unfortunately the food was not what we expected. We looked at the reviews on yelp and four square and got really excited to eat here.

A low-ceiling, dark wood and reclaimed chairs filled den of men in suits and women in shift dresses. Great for a drink (reservation recommended) at the Blind Pig bar upstairs or a meal where you don't mind shouting over the noise.

I'm sad they don't do 'radioactive' drinks anymore as a result of patrons stealing the illuminated ice cubes. We asked for the craziest cocktails on the menu and...more
