Great atmosphere and aesthetics combined with excellent cocktails make this a go to spot for a special night out. When the weather is nice you can also sit outside and be treated to a panorama of the city. You can go wrong with any of their drinks but the Proper Cup is my personal favorite.
Service here is top notch and simply adds to the good food, drinks and amazing views. We stopped by for food and drink, it was busy on the rooftop but they made room for us and sat us quickly. When it started to rain they quickly came outside, grabbed our food and drinks, and made room for us inside. As larger tables opened up they moved us and made sure that we had everything we needed. Very good service. The tostadas, quesadillas, mushrooms, sliders and tots were delicious. Views with good company added to the atmosphere.
