This is a good bar for sitting with your friends and talking, while enjoying
excellent classic cocktails. The music we play is always at background volume,
so you can enjoy your conversation without having to raise your voice. The
drinks are seriously good and seriously classy, but this is not a place to debate
how long you should stir an Old Fashioned. This is a bar.
Drink what you like, but we recommend cocktails above all. Our list is small
but beautiful, and we trust you will ask the bartender for a suggestion. We

bad attitudes, a lack of patience, a door charge, a toilet charge, a wardrobe
charge, any drinks companies paying us to stock crap brands, any products
designed to appeal to the kind of people who watch more than one reality-TV
show, untrained bartenders, energy drinks, low prices, loud music, tea or coffee,

cause they don\u2019t have the money to buy their space on the back bar), faith in
humanity, belief in the small of a woman\u2019s back, the hanging curve ball, high
fiber, good scotch, years and years and years of experience, a deep and
abiding love of good liquor, great cocktails and lasting friendships, enough
bitters to make Harry Johnson giggle like a fool, a tailor, owners who work
almost every shift themselves, a belief that good drinks matter and grown-up
people enjoy them, decent late-night snacks, excellent wines and beers, seats for
everyone, late opening hours, a day off occasionally, and a lot of time for you.
Thanks for coming.

Enjoy our superb cocktails, but remember this is a bar, not a temple to drinks-related nerdiness. If you find yourself being overly picky or nerdy, please ask the bartender for a glass of cold beer with a shot of good booze on the side. Drink them both. That should fix you.
