This place is great if you're going out with a bunch of people for just a fun night out. I have a thing for aesthetically pleasing bars and this one is great. A nice, chill vibe and good drinks.

This place opened quite a few years ago. The decor was amazing. It was asian themed. The outside lounge area lets you sit in these lounges with pillows. The bar is nice and the crowd is very eclectic cool and hip. I highly recommend this place for a night out among friends.

this is a restuarant by day and bar/club by night. there's also an outdoor area with a pool. we had dinner her for a friend's birthday and partied afterward. the food was pretty good but had gourmet portions, if the portions were bigger i think the price would be much more suited. but the place is overall fun. the parties i've been to have all had a good vibe.

this place is always crackin. love the ambiance. we went to dinner for a friends birthday one year and they sat like 13 girls at one table and we all had to lean down to eat.. that was kind of awkward. the food was good, sort of small portions though. i'd say best time to go it on sundays... cool crowd!
