I used to go here all the time; it's across from the Frost Tower, it's a cool little joint. However, ever since their remodeling, it's gone way downhill, and it's pretty unfortunate. The new bartenders are ridiculously rude, all of the mixed drinks are incredibly weak (like, embarrassingly bad weak), the whisky/scotch pours are shallow, and no one knows how to make a classic Old Fashioned.
I can't believe the bartenders argued with me. I can't believe they snobbishly ignored me in a conversation. I've never had that happen. I guess they're really happy making a bar hand's wage, because jesus. they acted like they were walking on top of the world.
The drink delivery was incredibly slow for the volume being served, no one could understand tabs and there was an insane mixup with a table's tab, the drinks were really below average and incredibly weak, and the bartenders were just complete jerks. The live music, however, was fantastic; even though they instituted a COVER.
Avoid this place at all costs for happy hours and parties, since it's beyond not being economical, and since they're huge jerks. My party of 12 wound up cashing out and going to a different venue. It was just really not worth it. Our money is much better spent elsewhere for a superior experience. Cover is never good, nor is slow, shafty, weak drinked service.
I would not recommend this place since its remodeling; before that happened, however, it was a great after-hours happy hour joint. Truly sad; I'm bummed as a frequent patron.
Pros: good live music lineup usually, it has a legacy of being great
Cons: horrible value, weak drinks, snob bartenders, lame service, no A/C, new venue and staff atrocious and damaging established brand
