3 out of 5 stars
(1user review)

This dark, Deco-inspired Nolita enclave has no pretensions, just decent prices, a friendly staff and a mellow clientele. The cocktail menu is split equally between classics and creative offerings, like the sweet French 06, an effervescent pear-and-prosecco tipple. Go early with a date to claim a spot on the blue-leather banquettes, or head over later in the evenings, when a DJ spinning pop music brings out the singles set.

Fun place, great location, has a difficult time standing out in a crowded area, but enjoyable nonetheless. The seating area is intimate and comfortable. The bar and standing area are nicely decorated, and the corner position creates a nice space, but it is a bit small overall, which leads to problems with crowding - though probably unavoidable, and makes it seem cooler with a line outside, and bodies packed in. The drink selection and pricing is as expected, though unremarkable. Overall, it's a nice spot to stop by if nearby or just to hang, but not necessarily one to seek out for its own merits.
