I tried the Drip "Speakeasy" during my latest visit. It was and will continue to be an amazing experience! The room design is wonderful and very well put together. The "cocktail" made my day, weekend, feel like I was in my 20s. (See what I did there?!) Staff is amazing. Doc is one of a kind. If you have pain issues, this should and will be your last stop.
