Fodor's Review

Dutch artist Peter Van Kleef's candle-strewn, funky café-bar crackles with creative energy. Van Kleef has a lot to do with the convivial atmosphere; the garrulous owner loves sharing tales about his quirky, floor-to-ceiling collection of pop-culture mementos. The café has a consistently solid calendar of live music, heavy on the jazz side. The drinks are among the stiffest in town.
