The fireplace caught my eye from the street. The atmosphere is great and had that appeal like many of the W Hotel bars. It is a bar/club so the music is louder than some may like but I enjoyed it. Free WiFi tips it from 3 to 4 stars.

I went here with my family to break the fast after Yom Kippur - we had a wonderful meal and it was incredibly authentic. The inside has a large space, with a few enlarged photos of the Machaneh Yehuda (open air market in Jerusalem) and a neat facade of Jerusalem stone (not sure if it was real or fake). We started off with plates of hummus and Israeli salads. Both taste like they were made from a kitchen in Jerusalem. There's really no need to get their appetizers - we ordered a couple, they don't stand up to the classics. (Admittedly, we ordered a ton of food because we were crazy hungry, so in hindsight, we didn't really need the appetizers). For entrees, a couple of us got kebabs which were perfectly spiced and cooked with a beautiful red center all tender and juicy and break-the-fast-alicious. We chatted up the manager that night who was from Israel. Very kind guy, in the end, he offered us some liqueur that was like a watery sambuca. Very nice after dinner drink if you're into anise/licorice/etc. All in all, it was a very pleasant experience for a post-Yom Kippur meal.

I may be a little biased, but I love this place! Its intimate, but still has a fun dancefloor. I think Solomon and Chris Clouse will be there on Wednesdays playing a live mash up set, then Thursdays will be Donovan. Make sure to check out the drink menu--the owners put together a pretty entertaining list of Prohibition-themed cocktails. Some interesting things people probably don't know: - The space actually was a speakeasy during prohibition. - The owner actually found those amber glass balls three years ago at a store. He loved them so much he bought hundreds of them and told his designer to build an entire multimillion dollar venue around those balls. - The Mayor actually declared September 15th, 2006 officially Slide day.
