Love It – Such a chill place to go to. Great intimate atmosphere, service was awesome. The happy hour is pretty good too. I'd recommend as an after work hang out, or just a chill night on the town.
$2 Well drinks! – I went here with a group of 8 on a Friday evening in time for their happy hour that ran until 8pm. The waitress was attentive to our empty glasses and the food we ordered came out in a timely manner and was piping hot. It is really dark inside and hard to see when you walk in, but your eyes will adjust. And you can't beat $2 whiskey and sodas!
Great easy going Environment – Love the lighting and the music. Very personal and easy going atmosphere Great happy hour prices. Not the best location but its worth the trip.
Nice Chill atmosphere – This place is so dark with red highlights, I find it hard to navigate, but that's what I like about it. You're put out of your atmosphere. It's small, it's got interesting elements, mirrors, concrete, plastic space-egg chairs. I like it. The low bar is a pretty interesting experience too.
Mellow & laid-back – I just moved to oldtown & been exploring places lately. Cool, laid-back spot good for a weeknight drink. I went there on a thursday night & loved the music. Great for a mellow evening. However, I went in on a tuesday night too & did not like the music much that night.
Great place for a chill drink – This place is one of my favs: the dim, red lighting, chill music they spin, and the cozy, intimate space all make it a great place for a chill drink. They also have some decent happy hour specials. I would highly recommend this place for an after-work cocktail, or for a pre-func before you go out. Downside though: the specialty drinks are average at best, and the food is really sub-par Asian-fusion fare (they even found a way to screw up edamame... waaay too much salt).
For clubgoers who like their lounge dark, their drinks creative and their neighbors sexy. – The Scene
Think downtown cocktail lounge, with a touch of '80s chic and ski-lodge style--but in a good way. Cut-out, egg-shaped chairs surround low chrome-and-black glass tables in the mirror-ceilinged front room. Raw wood beams throughout the dark space feel more ski lodge than industrial, and work well to soften the mod aesthetic. A crowd of well-dressed drinkers makes for a very of-the-moment flavor.
Well-thought out cocktails, like the Blackberry Kazi, a berry-laced version of the popular kamikaze, and good sake served chilled stand out on an appealing drink list. Asian-leaning food choices include simple, flavorful curries--red, green or yellow--as well as excellent appetizers like hum bao (steamed pork buns) and savory, filling pot stickers. Skip the edamame, which, curiously, are cooked without salt and arrive remarkably bland.
