I hadn't planned on writing a review since I only went here for drinks with some friends, but I guess I changed my mind... The rooftop bar area really was a nice space to sit and have a drink. A nice fake fireplace in the center of the enclosed area kept it nice and toasty even for someone who has a tendency to feel cold (like me). We went around 8pm on a Wednesday evening and there was room for all nine of us to relax on the comfy couches. I'm not much of a fancy fruity expensive mixed drink kind of girl, so I looked to the beer list. Although watered down with your Miller Lites etc, I was happy to see that Yards Brawler was on the list (along with Guinness at $7 a pop). Our waitress brought over our drinks, sniffed all of my friends' martinis (I assume to ensure she hadn't forgotten which was which) and handed me my bottle since I guess they don't have anything on tap. I would have appreciated an offer of a glass so I could have felt like I wasn't just drinking a beer at home, but wasn't about to cause a stink about it. I ended up leaving earlier than the rest of my group, so I asked the waitress if I could just give her cash for my $6 bottle of beer. She said 'sure' and took my $10 bill. Returning later, she handed me $2 in change. I was confused originally and thought maybe I had misread the menu, but no, she definitely helped herself to a 33% tip! I could rant some more about much I thought this was inappropriate, but I'll leave you to decide if I was right or wrong in my indignation. I didn't say anything then, mainly because I tend to be a wuss in person but also because I would have felt silly arguing over a dollar. Bottom line...I wouldn't choose to go here myself...but if I ended up here anyway, I'd be more careful and ready with an "oh I'm sorry, I don't think I got the right change" if need be!

This place is like a secret I wasn't supposed to know about. I'm not going to tell anyone else. And when mentioned to me, I'm going to act genuinely surprised to hear about it. "KoKo's? What? Naw never been there. Sure, I like checking out new places." It's better than: "I was geeked up after 10 min of being there and it's darker than a Vampire bingo hall, but I liked it."

They have a nice rooftop area with a bar. By 'nice' I mean it would be nice to look at the view if not that fact that I got stomped by a herd of middle aged men and women trying to have too much fun every five seconds. The drinks are way overpriced, you don't even get a glass-full for your four-buck beer. They are very unprofessionally, and I'd say rather rude, served in plastic containers about three inches tall. And those would be beers. Order a cocktail, and you will be given a thimble. Besides that, if one lived about forty years, shouldn't he or she know practices of politeness and social conduct by now? Which would in words of any other person mean "the crowd sucks balls" (and not in a good meaning of that phrase).

Came from LA to visit friends they took me here just to go and chill. It was a cool spot, really differ from LA, but the music was good. I think I saw Afrolicious I don't remember because i was already pretty wasted when I came in. Good house dancers there I love that style since I'm a hip hop dancer. Overall a cool place to chill, listen to music, and have a few drinks!
