products

ordinary drinks w/ ordinary price. canadian owner.

clientele

les-hipsta-wannabe uptown crowd. mixture of PURPLE readers and hudson [hotel] clientele. metallic belts and stone-washed jeans in women's room.

service

hard to get bartenders' attention... a group of my friends by the bar counter were being yelled at all night long.

interior

the skylight, high ceiling, two interior balconies and hard-to-notice entrance attracts the architects from 90's. there is a rare black manekineko [A cat sculpture that welcomes the wealth to the owner's house] on top of the high shelf. I love that humor!
