I have never been to anywhere anything like this. A totally new experience. Amazing. One of the bar maids was very rude however. She made what we asked though so that's what matters.

Got charged for 3 drinks when we got 2. Didn't realise till the day after when I checked the receipt (always check the bill). Also got stopped from using the toilet unless I paid! Tourism helps economy...dont ruin it for yourselves!

This place is one of my favourite ruin bars. It has changed location but has simply got bigger and better. Expect to explore a labyrinth of eccentric rooms (indoor and outdoor) whilst enjoying your drink.

The thing about these comparison sites is that you need to be able to compare against something. Instant (and the other ruin bars) are just so different that they are beyond comparison! Instant is joined by others that form a network of maybe a dozen...More

This is definitely more of a club than a bar. The décor was amazing and the different music was great. Drinks prices are pretty good. It's quite chilled out up until 1am but after that the party really got started. However, I found the security...More
