Despite its location off the lobby of the Frederick Hotel and the $22 martini on the menu, this place is actually pretty fun. The bar room up front looks like a set from The Life Aquatic, with conch shell lights, velvet furniture, and servers in matching red jackets. The cocktails are good, and later in the evenings, they open up a separate room in the back with a bar, DJ, and dance floor.
