Great laid back atmosphere with awesome music playing in the background. Listen to the reviews and get the tacos! They also offer $15 flights which includes four tastings of draft beer. Love!

Located inside Cole's French Dip is this amazing speakeasy. The Varnish is small, intimate, and dimly lit. Cocktails are made using fresh herbs and organic juices. Try the Eastside martini made with cucumber and gin. Refreshing! Bartenders are very knowledgeable. Tell them what you feel like and they will not disappoint you.

Simply a great place to go and have a nice drink. If you want a bite to eat and a special drink or two and your in the neighborhood; then The Varnish/Coles are the place to go to.

Fantastic service. Definitely stick with the bartender's choice drinks - they were all awesome. The menu drinks were good, but not great. Nice atmosphere, but a little too loud for the quality of drinks and service
