  • Have been for happy hour. I haven’t had them, but people at my office go crazy for the lamb sliders.

  • Not impressed, thought it was overpriced for what it was, and the service was not good. Overall, my experience was mediocre to borderline bad, although admitteldy I went only a few months after it opened. It has managed to stay in business, so maybe it has improved (especially considering the amount of competition in the area, I’d think it’d be gone if it hadn’t).

  • This is one of the cooler, yet lesser known bars in Dupont. They actually have a pretty good crowd on the weekends and very affordable daily happy hour. Staff is usually pretty friendly and hostesses are always sexy.

  • I have been a couple of times for happy hour. The lamb sliders are indeed very tasty.

  • Decent food from a ‘lounge’? Not possible.

  • A friend of mine and I went to have drinks and an appetizer there. We come in and they tell us every room/seating area is reserved, so we walk to the bar…where there are no chairs. We stood around waiting for service until someone allowed us to sit on a couch that was reserved for a bachelorette party later that night… it was very odd on a Saturday evening to not accomodate people stopping in. It was an odd situation.
