    Service is Terrible, ordered a drink and took over an half an hour. I had ordered a drink and the bar tender had served 3 people before me. I am very unsastified with the service. I will never come to this club again nor will I ever suggest anyone to come here. Worst expetience ever.

    A small liquor store open late with good selection. Single and case beer available as well as a fair amount of wines.
