"Thank you for the beautiful shower for my sister Laura.  She had a great time and so did everyone else.  Everything was perfect and the service was excellent.  It was a very elegant, inviting, comfortable atmosphere to spend with our family and friends.  Thank you once again, you did a wonderful job." - May '13


"This place is a gem. The food is great, and they have the best bands and solo musicians there, with a stage, lights, and sound system. It's better than a west village club. Highly recommended." - Google Review Jan '13


We even get accolades from the bands that perform here:

"Hearts out to this club. I didn't think they made clubs or club owners like this anymore. A more gracious staff and management is hard to find these days.. They provided a great atmosphere with loving people to play for."
