I enjoyed the time I spent at APO, so thanks for the recommendation. While the drinks were good, I think most of the good time was because of the atmosphere, allowing our group to converse without straining ourselves. The cocktail menu was pretty limited, and so were the liquor selections. I think they have a way to go before I'd compare them to one of the heavy hitters in the industry, but it's a solid place to spend a night and grab some good cocktails. Our server was a little on the soft side when it came to knowledge, but one of her colleagues was able to rescue her when I asked for an old tom on the rocks (which they did, to their credit, have in stock).
All in all, I'd give the drinks a 7 out of 10, the service a 7.5 out of ten, and the atmosphere a 8.5-9 out of 10. Definitely worth a stop by.
