I would rank this bar as one of the top in the downtown area based on the following characteristics: uniqueness (thumbs up), level of pretentiousness (non-existent), people (great mix of suits, casual, posh), vibe (relaxed), and best of all - drinks (very good). The only shortcoming of this bar is size...it could get REALLY busy on certain nights. If you're more of the pretentious type, stroll a few blocks to the 'way-past-its-prime' Standard a few blocks away. If you want character and something new, this is your place.
Pros: vibe, decor, people
Cons: a bit small...
