The bartender was very friendly. We enjoyed reading the pictures on the wall of famous people. The jail theme was interesting The drinks were great too, but on the pricey side

We stopped in for a drink prior to dinner at Clink. Cool atmosphere and unique drink menu, consistent with the overall theme.
