What I really liked about this place was the fact that the cocktail waiters were willing to try and make my favourite drink (Bobby Burns) even though they weren't familiar with the drink. Using top shelf Scotch at a reasonable price - was more than I could ask for. I felt they got it right the first time, but seemed to lose flavour and get worse by the third order.
Otherwise atmosphere in the Establishment is just alright. Way too many suits, but it does mean that it's a little highbrow crowd. Any evening after work the place is packed with corporate high flying types.
Besides Friday evenings, most nights I can seem to get a seat for my self and few freidsn and enjoy our evening. Drinks are a little pricey, but I think they are more than fair for an inner city up market bar. I can say they are not as nearly as expensive as another bar for example.
The staff are very nice to look at and generally courteous and quick. They can get caught chatting amongst themselves a fair bit, but it's not painful or anything.
