“A romantic french restaurant in the back and a beautiful, sceney bar up front. They serve up some of the best cocktails in town. It gets a little nuts on the weekends, but is fantastic on a weekday evening.”

“Mohawk Bend is located in a retrofitted 100-year-old silent movie theater and is one of my favorite places to eat and hang out with friends or just go by myself and have a pizza during Happy Hour. They have a ton of California craft beers & a delicious locally sourced American menu with options for all diets. They have a great Happy Hour during ~ Mon – Fri: 3 PM – 7 PM ~ Fri – Sat: 11 PM – Close ~ Sun – Thurs: 10 PM – Close. There is usually a wait during peak hours so I would recommend making a reservation unless you're visiting during HH. ”
