“One of my favorite spots in the Annex! Very good spot for food and drinks. Is casual and very hip. the staff is amazing and the energy is always fun. They have a real mix of music to enjoy will you dine there. Or you can just park it at the bar and meet some locals or out-of-towners. The late night menu is probably one of the best in the city, serving till late.”
