Went for a beer on a Tuesday

Really nice terrace upstairs, went for a beer, live music and exceptional terrace. It was empty but we enjoyed it a lot! Great views, open air terrace. Will go back for sure!

We were up on the roof in more wind than desirable. The bartenders were good, the seating was comfy (luckily we were there early), and most of all the drinks were good.

The bouncer lost his mind and started fighting people for no reason. He ended up dislocating one of my friends knees, threw another one over a car, and threw me into the side of a dumpster for absolutely no reason. Scary place with scary workers. Avoid at all costs

I visited this venue for a company event. Great place to hold an event...lots of room between the 3 levels! Fun place with two vintage bowling lanes, shuffle board, and darts. Upstairs was a great view of Congress Ave, and a nice place to sit and visit. The music was great--both the full band and the acoustic set on the... More

This is a very hip bar. They have action on multiple stories. Including the magnificent rooftop bar. Okay it can get windy but the view and feeling is awesome. I presume entrance fee depends on the concert. Locals told us this is a hot place for shows. The band we saw was professional as hell. They have open mic nights... More

Good views from the rooftop patio, although feels a lot more closed in than it used to. Service was also pretty good, but the olives that came with the martini's were the worst olives I have ever tasted. This experience literally left a bad taste in my mouth.

Good venue but don’t go bowling and they unfairly charge you $5 for entry. The place was pretty much empty when we walked in and never got busy so bit surprising that they charged for entry. We were told that the bowling lane was old when we paid to bowl for 30 mins but we weren’t expecting it to be... More

We were in the back room on the lower level and it was really nice. Room was a nice size and the bar was set up in a nice area. Room to dance and just have fun. Will definitely irritated visit again. Didn't get to see the bowling alley that's above. Heard it's nice though.
