Not to be confused with Blue & Gold a couple of blocks away, this bar is quiet, dark, and thinly populated -- an ideal place for secret assignations, or just a low-key nightcap. Don't go looking for craft cocktails, though.

excellent place for a drink – Interesting to see that the reviews describing how bad the bartender was were submitted at the same time. Anyways, I've been to this place several times and have had nothing but good experiences. Friendly customers, friendly bartenders, good selection of beers on tap...I just wish the kitchen was still open!

if you can call him a bartender... – I read all the reviews on this place and recently met up with some friends there. The music was cool, along with the female dj who was rocking out the tunes.

The bartender/mangager was so annoyed by me asking him for drinks that I almost started questioning myself, "am i doing something wrong to tick this guy off"?! uuuuuh.... the answer is no way I wasn't, he's the bartender and it's his friggin job to serve drinks to the patrons!! Geeeeeeezzzz... this guy kept that stick up his butt the whole night too. Almost making it intimidating to approach the bar and buy more drinks. yeah real tough guy...Im a female dude have some f-ing courtesy if someones being polite aaaaaannnnd tipping you!!!

Horrible Service and RUDE bartender – I have to agree with the past reviews--the bartender was so RUDE! I will never go back to this place because of him and will be sure to spread the word about the horrible service at this place. The guy thinks he is bartender version of th soup Nazi--it's ridiculous.

Worst Bartender/Manager Ever--RUDE! – I was here last night with a group of friends. We were at the bar just a few minutes and ordered a round of shots. First of all, the bar was not extremely busy, and the bartender was sitting at the opposite end of the bar from us. When I tried to get his attention, he tried his hardest to ignore me--not sure why. When he finally took my order, he acted like he was doing me a favor by getting our drinks. I am sorry, but what kind of customer service is that? You should not be a bartender if you cannot be bothered with your patrons. You are in the wrong business!! Then, when I asked to speak to the manager, it so happens that the bartender is the manager. Then he proceeds to kick us out for no reason--I still don't know why. All I know is that this bar will not survive if this man is allowed to be the bartender/manager. He will def. ruin it.

Worst bartender ever... – Met a group at this small intimate bar. Had been once or twice before. Walked in stone cold sober as I have a condition that doesnt allow me to drink. Was near the bar where a chubby, sweating, growing up gotti bartender was screaming at a girl for some reason. When I say screaming, I mean screaming and using profanities. He complained that he was sick of serving F****** 21 year olds. He turned to me and asked me how old I was. I told him I was 24 I think. (I sometimes forget now that no birthday is a legal milestone) He told me to F*** off and get out of his bar. (He is not the owner) I was really surprised but seeing as how it was a friends birthday I didnt want to ruin the night for her. I left without issue. I am a business owner myself and feel bad for the owner of this bar. He has employees representing him that I wouldnt let represent a mass murderer in court. Hope your experience with the place is better.

With an entrance several steps below street level, this local favorite is cozy, boxy and charming. – Attracting a steady flow of well-heeled patrons, this neighborhood favorite fills up quickly on weekends and smartly accommodates table folk with banquettes in Hershey-bar-proportioned alcoves. Surprisingly well-matched red and orange vertical stripes impart a warm sophistication, enhanced by old-fashioned sconces on the walls and art-deco lighting fixtures behind the bar. Cocktails are excellent and ample; a perfect accompaniment to the uncommonly cute crowd of professional, creative and fashion types that can usually be found here on any given night.

Jam Packed and a Tad Dingy – There is very little seating and the standing room is minimal. Expect to have to push to get to the bar.

Average – Came here on a Wednesday Night. It' s not a very big place, a handful of seats at the bar and some tables and chairs all of which were occupied. The lighting is very dark and there are no televisions. Beer selection was limited and prices were a little expensive for the neighborhood ($5 for a bottle of Bud Light). Drinks are $2 off during happy hour. It seemed okay although nothing about it was special nor would make one want to return.
