I’ve been here before and I would not base your judgement of this place by the food rating. It is an incredible cocktail bar that has had to offer food option so they could be open in accordance with MA law. The drinks are phenomenal and the staff is great. Please keep supporting them so we can keep our amazing bars open!

Amazing cocktails, and the staff is always great. Sitting in the "ski lodge" and sipping a delicious drink is always an awesome experience. Reserve the couch if you can! You'll be the center of attention as you laugh and drink in far superior seating as everyone else is green with seat envy. (The other tables are still good though)

Food was too expensive for what it was- a tiny pizza and 2 pretzels but everything else was amazing. Tastiest drinks we’ve ever had!

Brilliant, creative cocktails made with top-notch and unusual ingredients, devised and executed by expert mixologists. Simply the best cocktails (classic and nouveau) on the North Shore. Don't worry about the food. It's only there for legal reasons.

An absolutely wonderful night. We dropped in for a 9:00 reservation on a Thursday, and the staff was attentive, super friendly, and welcoming. They gave us a tasting of all of their incredible liquors, and then came out and did a free shot with us! The house-distilled absinthe and rum were particularly yummy (and I left with a few bottles to go!) Thank you so much for a great time. We will absolutely be back whenever we're in Salem!

Awesome place, they held my reservation while I dropped off my car at our hotel (no parking allowed in the area during October) and I got an uber back. Food and drinks were superb and the service was excellent.

Great safety protocols. Excellent friendly staff. Excellent quality cocktails. They had a local eatery doing a pop-up and they were great as well. Really enjoyed it. Will be back.

It’s amazing what you can do with a warehouse/loading dock. The Tiki Bar looked awesome! A really relaxing atmosphere, and a top notch crew making sure everyone felt welcome. I know it’s not easy making this transformation, so my friends and I appreciate you making the effort. The community needs this! Well done, and I wish you continued success!

We really enjoyed the cocktails and ambience. We ordered the charcuterie platter because we thought it was supposed to include some cheeses, but turned out to only be meat, bread, and some fun accompaniments. It was delicious anyway, and not worth making a fuss...we had a good time! We purchased some of the canned cocktails, and so appreciated visiting a fun new place!

The drinks were great but Service was SLOW and it was not crowded. The food was not good, there needs to be more choices or a takeout menu for local food.

Cool space in a weirdly residential area. The drinks were very good but $8 for a hot dog? Come on. My date was so upset with the price he clammed up and wouldn't talk for the rest of the time there. We got up and got our coats on and had to find the server to get our check. I offered to pay for the whole thing since it was my idea and to make the peace. I got cans of cocktails to go and I will be back after Covid when we don't have to have food.
