happy hour review: eye spy

the new eye bar in dc is actually quite hard to spy. a few doors down from to the ever popular cafe asia, eye bar needs quite a bit of help getting notice.

first, the physical sign for eye bar is difficult to see as it competes with the neon sign for the upstairs hair salon. look about 20 feet up and you might catch it.

second, the owners are relying on word-of-mouth promotion — a bit frustrating when trying to decide on whether to check this place out — i’m not about to waste my time and money on a lounge w/o a recommendation.

three, martinis served in metal glasses (is it still called a glass if it’s made of metal?). needless to say, leaves a weird metallic taste in the mouth. keep in mind, i’m pretty particular about my martinis.

lastly, nothing really kept me there after an hour. the place was fairly empty; so we ended up craving sushi and made our way over to cafe asia.

my piece of advice is that eye bar should take it up a notch — there’s too much competition in dc for happy hours. for those of you considering checking eye bar out, give them a few months to make some changes…
