Melrose Station is a speakeasy on (you guessed it) Melrose, and we’re here to report it’s a disappointment. The space itself is very nice, but after securing an “invitation” online, waiting 10 minutes outside, being escorted to the back of a hookah lounge, through a bookshelf and past another secret door, it hits you - people just don’t want to drink like this anymore. Not to mention the fact that the drinks themselves are all $16+ and pretty terrible. Perhaps this place will eventually find its way, but right now, it’s just trying to be like everybody else - in 2011.
