Rubbish, appallling service but great for watching staff have a chat with their mates. Go somewhere else. Shame I had to give it 1 star - zero would be more accurate.

A group of six (3 couples in a separate party to us) also arrived at the same time and we all sat outside. The men were all wearing smart shorts. The waitress brought menus over to... More

First visit. Great cocktails at amazingly cheap prices. Excellent service explaining drinks etc. Very fast efficient and courteous. Could do with a lick of paint and a freshen up but clearly for the younger clientele a great little place. Open until late.

This is a fun and sophisticated bar that is still fun if you're over 30! You can reserve a table and enjoy half price cocktails until 8pm. Staff are friendly with table service too. Great music and dancing as the night progresses. You should try it.
