Rocks & Drams is a super chill lounge that has a comfortable atmosphere, serving up unique drinks and food that is complex in flavor with elegant presentation. They have a live DJ booth spinning vinyl, adding to the chill vibes. The owner really pays attention to details and the seasonal adjustments to the menu make it worth frequent visits! This is an ideal lounge for more enjoyable relaxing with friends as the seating is super comfy. This place gets busy so be sure to get there earlier than planned to secure your seats!

Very discreet exterior, almost had trouble finding this place from a friends recommendation. Cocktail menu was overwhelming at first but the bartenders are beyond knowledgeable and helpful. Love the aesthetics of this lounge and would definitely come here for a birthday or other special occasion. We both loved our drinks and I would definitely recommend checking them out when in the area and wanted to feel a little *fancy*
