Asian Restaurant

“This place is named for a famous former London opium den that was visited by the likes of Aldous Huxley. Decor is on point (pseudo-East/Southeast Asian style, with peacocks, bold accents, jewel/gold colors, and lots of velvet). Pros: friendly bar staff, high quality cocktails, creative menu, lively crowd, best regular house music offering in the entire city every Thursday night -- called "Secret Garden" -- for real, if you like house music and you need something to do on Thursday night, check this out. Cons: expensive.”

The space was renovated and there’s an updated menu with new dishes and drinks as well as old favorites, like pozole, queso, and those margaritas. The bar features mezcal, beer, cocktails, and the same food items at the restaurant like tacos, flautas, and chile rellenos.”
