But the drinks are delicious and the menu is quite extensive (personally a fan of the 'Dirty Mermaid' - maybe because I like the name).
It's really one of the better date spots... more

The guide (Kevin? - a young Buddy Holly look alike) was fun, knowledgeable and patient with all our questions which I'm sure he's all heard... more
This bar does excellent and creative cocktails. Though it was crowded when my date and I arrived, we were able to get seats by the bar. It was a little stuffy, however, so I wouldn't recommend layering up for this particular venue. more
Ginstitute class is a truly impressive experience satisfying the adult needs of any true Sensuist.
