I had a Siam Sling to drink, which I will admit I partially...Read More

The winners for me at this restaurant were the hipster décor and the drinks.

Décor wise, the restaurant gave off shabby chic vibes with its dim lighting, wooden seats, assortment of succulents and mini candles on the tables -- the interior decorator had an excellent eye for intricate detailing.

Drinks wise, there was an expansive selection of unique wines, cocktails, beers, and...Read More
