The drinks are great, but the food is just par.
I've planned two events here, a corporate event with 30+ people and my birthday party with 25+ people. Both were open bar events for 2 hours. The staff is extremely easy to work with, very professional and prompt in responding. In my experience all (within reason) requests are normally granted and they really help work with your budget. I've also just recently attended a free open bar and passed hors d'oeuvre event for their anniversary and it actually blew me away, my coworkers and I were easily able to get FREE drinks, we averaged 6 a person, and they were consistent in passing out the free grub. There was also some face painting thrown in. It was AWESOME - I really hope they do it again next year. The space is a bit narrow between the bar and booths and during happy hour it gets pretty crowded. Before and after the happy hour the place is a ghost town. The staff that I've interacted with so far are lovely and efficient. One specific bartender during the anniversary event was my favorite bartender of the place. She was so attentive even though there were 30 people in front of her section of the bar. When I went to her it only took 5 minutes to get a drink. She was also downing Red Bull like a boss and always made two drinks at once lol.
