The free bar snacks did kept us there. The drinks kept us in conversation. And the decor kept us entertained. This place is pricey. We dropped over 100 American on 4 drinks.

This place has all the makings of my ideal drinks venue:

- outdoor seating in a cozy courtyard with vines and cobblestones

- no Abercrombie+Fitch type ambient music that sounds like you're on a spaceship to another dimension

- strong yet well-proportioned drinks, their current summer cocktail is an amazingly refreshing cucumber concoction that is a must try though their old fashioned was...more
