Nice bar - had a drink called a Cuba Gooding and it was DELICIOUS! So good. The rest of the night I searched every bar menu looking for something that good to no avail. Definitely stop in for a drink.

Make no mistake, it's a club complete with bouncers. I went to see it one night and witnessed bouncers removing the lock from a toilet door to get to young woman who was carried out unconscious.
