I like the speakeasy vibe and they do have good drinks, however, I was not that pleased overall. I made reservations as it was required to get good seats, but was informed that we will be on the waiting list. My friends and I were told to come half an hour earlier before the show so we can get good seats. Three hours later, we got great seats and splurged on drinks but the performer just arrived. When it was time, they danced for about less than five minutes. I don't even think they finished the song, then handed out tip jars. I've been to a lot of speakeasies around the country, and by far, this is one of the lamest if not the worst. Not gonna lie.

This hidden bar is one of my favorites. The bar is amazing and has such a romantic setting with the dark lighting and velvet booths. They have shows every night, including palm readers, flamingo dancers, sword swallowers, jazz players and more. They have unique drinks and are refreshing and delicious. For a velvet boot, you need a reservation for 6. Porron's are especially fun as you need to pour the drink directly into your mouth or have someone help you. Take it easy as these can easily catch up to you. The first time can be a little messy but worth the experience. The bordel classic drinks come cold and in a teapot. This was also great! The presentation was vintage and classy. The drinks did taste of tea with a little extra something to keep you warm. I love coming here and would recommend to anyone looking for a new place to check out.
