    Amazing date night spot. Good wait staff and amazing music. The braised beef was our fave and the Take A Bow>>>> that drink was the sheeeeit!

    I didn’t get food here so ignore that star rating, but if the cocktails were any indication - they were fantastic! I cannot recommend enough the Piña Clara. It’s the first thing on the menu for a reason. None of these cocktails taste too alcohol forward and are crafted beautifully for a balanced taste. I also highly recommend the mezcal cocktail. Perfect if you’re new to mezcal. I will definitely return.

    I haven't tried their food yet but the drinks are great. If you have a sweet tooth I definitely recommend the Champagne Float (I had raspberry sorbet with fresh raspberries)! I've been coming for Channel Orange and the ambiance and music combination feels cutting edge.

    Really enjoyed El Malo. The decor was nice and the staff were all very friendly- I called twice because I could find the entrance. It gives speakeasy vibes BUTTT as a first timer I was hard Navigating to the local. A few way signs would help. The bar tender was great! He made my favorite drink perfectly and I really enjoyed the food. Would definitely go back!

    Popped in on a Wednesday night for drinks/music and it was definitely a great relaxed vibe. The ambiance is great, upscale. Our server (Jordan) was attentive and gave good suggestions. We had the El Destino cocktail— so light and refreshing. The tostones were a great appetizer. The King crab was the highlight—just say yes! I was really excited about the Ropa Vieja, but my came cold, and it was underwhelming, esp the portion for the price. The seating is cute/cozy and it’s an incredible spot for drinks with the bestie, or the next date night.
