Full of eclectic furniture and books. Lounge areas as well as some street seating and a backyard garden courtyard. Good selection of wines and bottled beers. No draft. Easy going and relaxed vibe and comfy furniture to sink into.

its got a good atmosphere and lay out. Unfortunately the cocktails are very dependent on who makes it so the experience varies. Great for a last night cocktail or to start out with a few.
