And not only a huge selection from all around the world, but an incredibly knowledgeable staff that was fantastic at picking the right whisky round after round. Great atmosphere and overall experience. (Check out the picture for a really good Aussie whisky!)

Love this place. Great selection (more American whiskey would be good, but that's a minor note), friendly staff and a relaxed vibe. Plus the prices are superb. Awesome.

We stopped by for a shot or two after dinner. We kinda loved the ambiance of the place. It offered a long list of whiskey for you to choose from. If you were a whiskey lover, you would have a good time here.

even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
