A couple of us went down to Capones to listen to some Jazz and have some food last Wednesday. Great spot and good food. The service was very good. All the staff seem to really enjoy working there. Must be the Jazz.
We will be back.

Last Saturday I was invited by some friends to have drinks at Opus Hotel. Well, I must say what a cool place to have drinks. The Opus Bar has a great vibe with funky modern furniture, cool music and a great cocktail list. Our server suggested that we try one of their ‘Signature Lifestyle Character Cocktails’. I went with her suggestion and ordered a ‘Sexy Cocktail’. The cocktail came in a tall thin ‘vase’ like glass with sparkling wine and Alize Rose. It had edible flowers as a garnish. Very tasty! It was the first time I had sparkling wine on ice. All the cocktails that we ordered were different, tasty and inventive.
One thing that really stood out was the music. They had a DJ playing in the bar. Cool modern style. Not too loud which was nice. So many times you go to a place where the music is way to loud and you can’t here yourself think.
After our drinks we decided to move over and have dinner in the restaurant. The room is totally different from the Opus Bar. Elixir looks like a French bistro. It has two private rooms and a bar. We sat in the Velvet Room. The room’s décor has velvet curtains, dark woods with beautiful mirrors. The restaurant was quite busy with a couple of large tables. My friends told me that they heard good things about the chef and the restaurant. Well it was a great experience. We ordered a bunch of dishes to share. All the dishes were tasty. I love going out for dinner and sharing food with friends. To compliment the night we had a great server who was friendly, attentive and quite comical! The server definitely added to the experience.
All in all, a great experience. I look forward to going back and trying more of the cocktails!
