Have always wanted to go for drinks so called first to see if we needed reservations. We were told that we didn't so took a ride over. Upon arrival, we were told that the bar was full, and that no amount of waiting would allow us to get in, even for one drink. We asked if we could have a quick look from the observation area and when we went out there, were glared at a by a bouncer type man. We then asked if we could make reservations for the next afternoon/evening and they said that they don't take reservations for the bar. So my question is this, How does one get to sit at the bar and have a drink? The staff were less than accomodating, offered no suggestions, left a bad taste in our mouths, and helped us decide not to return. Based on the reviews I had read on Chowhound, I was surprised and disappointed. Wondering if anyone else has had a similar experience.
