My girlfriends and I selected this place for our yearly Christmas get-together for some drinks, dinner and gift-exchanging, and trust me...NOBODY was disappointed! On-street parking was super easy (I parked right across the street!) and the hostess was more than accommodating in finding us a cozy nook with plush couches and chairs. Beautiful setting, whimsical paintings (all champagne related) and ""bubble"" shaped lighting helps to convert this place into a professionally swanky place! Cocktails are a BIT pricey, but seeing as we were on a celebratory budget we all tried almost every one on the menu, SO GOOD! The small menu worried me a bit, but everything was perfectly delicious! Small sliders, the truffle foccacia (amazing!), the cheese platters, and dessert, it was all more than enough! The only thing missing was a fully-functioning fireplace against a snow-drift backdrop with a twinkle of Christmas lights. The thought didn't escape my mind for a mere 2 seconds before a manager pulled down a HUGE big screen and projected a large image of a crackling fireplace. Definitely not the same, but was totally awesome! Service was attentive, the ambiance wasn't overly loud, and the music was groovy. I truly can't wait to go back, either with my husband or with the girls! P.S. If your the suit-chasing type, or have a strong attraction to European men...you'll have more than your fair share of eye candy! ;-)
Pros: Cozy ambience, great cocktails, trendy bar, attentive service
Cons: Needs a fireplace! Don't sit by the stairs.
