upscale place with top notch service 4/24/2010

The place in gorgeous, mixed crowd, upscale furniture with great service. The prices are pricey but it's what you would expect for the neighborhood. I loved the food - bite size so eat before you get there, lol. The bottles aren't too too expensive. The staff is great - very attentive. I went with a mid-size group for my birthday and I talked via phone and e-mail with their staff to coordinate my outting and they were very receptive and responded quickly to answer all my questions. Great date spot also because it's intimate. Pros: stylish Cons: pricy more

Absolute chic and hip after work hangout place! 11/9/2009

2 of my girlfriends and I decided to try this place out couple of weeks ago after reading great reviews about it and I must say this place was amazing. Great drinks, very chic and sexy atmosphere with a great touch of class and great hospitality. The evening that we were there, we ended up sitting at the next table to the owner, his wife and their friends and they were very friendly, nice people. Definetely a place everyone should check out - crowd is very classy, place is happening and the drinks are great! I am going back again very soon with friends! Pros: extensive drink menu, great atmosphere Cons: can't think of any! more


I work around midtown and there has been NO PLACE that can offer a cool, laid back but sexy environment for a drink and some tasty food! I love having this as my go-to spot to invite all of my girlfriends for an after work libation, or a pre-club hang! This has quickly become my favorite new spot in Manhattan, as I'm probably there a little too much! ;) Pros: Atmosphere, sophistication, and great crowd! Cons: NONE! more

Out With Old, In With The New!! 9/2/2009

Finally a new place to go in NYC! I don't know about you, but I'm sick of the same old cliche places that everyone has been to a million times and all they do is just change their name from time to time so people think its a new club. This lounge is new and its hot! Real classy decor and great drinks. Real good looking crowd and an all around good time. Its very high end if you're taking someone you are really trying to impress. I recommend it to anyone looking for a good time! Pros: Gorgeous and Classy Decor more

Great Late Night Dining 9/1/2009

I went to the typical 20 something bar w/ my firends this weekend and we ended up leaving early because I got tired of the same old scene. As I'm sure anyone can relate, you build up quite an appetite after you've been drinking for a while. My buddy suggested this place because he worked down the street and knew they just opened up. I thought it was just a cocktail lounge, but when we went in, we were surprised to find out they offer a late night dining menu. This isn't your typical nyc lounge or bar food, this stuff was delicious! W ordered the Mini Cuban and the Smoked Yellow Tail. It was better than food I would have ordered at a traditional restaurant. This place is super classy and the food is great. I only wish I'd have brought a woman here rather than my boys. We ended up splitting a bottle and believe it or not, this place was very reasonable in terms of prices for bottle service... $350 for a bottle of goose. I would absolutely recommend this place. Pros: Award Worthly Late Night Bites Cons: I wish this place opened years ago more

Sleek & Sophistocated 9/1/2009

This is the perfect place to take someone you're interested in. I work with this woman who just started at my office a few months ago. I wanted to spend time with her but I didn't want to put too much pressure on her and make her feel uncomfortable. So I invited her out for after work drinks. I thought I'd try this place because it seemed classy and I know it just opened. This place was perfect, the atmosphere was amazing, beautiful decor, full of other working professionals and the music was at the perfect level where we could hear and enjoy it, but we were still able to carry on a conversation. This place was cool because all of the food they served was designed to share, it really helped me establish a level of comfort with the woman I took out. I'm excited, she was so impressed, she accepted my invitation for another dinner. Pros: Food, Drinks, Music & Atmosphere more
