Loved the cocktails, the music and other revellers! Best place to hang out on Portobello road. Its charming and full of character and you bump into beautiful people.

This bar could be fun if it weren't for the team of 'chip on their shoulder' rude staff, ranging from the barmen to the manager who is clearly not coping with the responsibility of her role. The team clearing drinks push patrons around (I was...More

I’ve been coming to this place for the past ten to fifteen years solidly. However on the past two consecutive occasions I’ve had terrible experiences. The blond Eastern European manager is extremely rude - the first time, there was a misunderstanding with the drinks order...More

Got there early and had a reservation, as per the guidance of others, which helped a lot. The food choices were pretty slim so either eat before or plan to eat after but the cocktails were excellent. Was a nice hour out with the wife

Cool interior. Trendy, chill out vibe and great cocktails. Arrive early because it does get very packed, especially on Friday and Saturday nights.

Unique, fun, with unbelievably attentive personalized service. They seem to love creating drinks for you and recommending things that you wouldn't normally order but end up liking. It is dark and funky in a good way. Treat yourself to a new experience and try this...More

Having been to this venue on two occasions now. I have not been disappointed. Service is impeccable and consistent. Drinks are excellent. Music was great throughout the night. I cannot comment on the food as I have not had an opportunity to eat there yet.
