Rachelle is amazing. Great bartender with some sass. I highly recommend checking this place out.

I went twice before and got cocktail bowl and cocktails. What was enlightening this time was the fact they are providing rum flights (I never got a look at their menu before). Even though they were swamped by the saturday night, the bartender still took the time to explain each rum and ask me my opinion afterwards !

The staff was attentive. Doorman was great.. helped us get a prime seat and the bartender, upon discovering we were new patrons, gave us top notch first class attentive service.

What a great little bar. The craft made cocktails were great, as were the pre-done punches. They even let us have happy hour specials with the groupon, which was a little dangerous :). The crowd was a lot of fun, like a family. It was a great experience.

Wow! I had never even heard of Hobson's Choice before buying the Groupon, but am so glad I know of it now. The atmosphere was very comfortable and welcoming, especially the bartender. I tried several of the different punches offered and they were all delicious. I definitely see myself returning and would recommend it to others.

From Our Editors

Beneath twin lanterns rests the entrance to a quiet punch house modeled after the classic British punch houses of the Victorian era. These are not punches of fruit or fist, but rather of rum, the chosen inebriant of Hobson's Choice. The bar stocks more than 120 varieties of this sugary spirit, including Old Grog, Myers's, and Neisson Réserve Spéciale, as well as rare and limited-quantity batches. Beneath a line of antique chandeliers dripping with sweet, sweet history, the staff fills glasses with specialty cocktails such as the Planter's Punch, a mixture of Coruba dark Jamaican rum, fresh orange juice, lemon juice, and grenadine. To chase these libations, they also serve food catered by the nearby Asqew Grill.
