The food is amazing. The carefully crafted cocktails are worth the wait it sometimes takes to make them. Over 100 varieties of tequila! It's an upstairs space (with alternative outdoor patio seating) but the reason I love it is because of the live music- think gypsy guitars, flamenco, Tango, Latin guitar. The bar area is pretty small and it gets crowded, even on weeknights, especially when everyone in the place is dancing to the live music.

James Monroe’s Highland is an historic site with a new story to tell. America’s fifth president lived at Highland with his family, including wife Elizabeth Kortright Monroe, from 1799 to 1823. They owned the property even longer (from 1793 to 1826). Between a fire that destroyed the main residence and enhancements by later owners, mystery and misunderstanding surrounded the site for years—only now are historians and archaeologists peeling back the layers of history to uncover Highland’s—and Monroe’s—true past.
