This place is a nonsense really. There is some sort of membership system but truthfully I don't know why. Inside, its cramped, the clientele a bit dodgy, the music is so so. The worst thing about this place is the so called VIP lounge, which...More

Years ago this place used to be a really good bar in Manchester.. However as time went on it turned into a different scene, it became a lot rougher, more scaly's, fight after fight every weekend. Extremely high priced drinks, which I don't mind paying...More

Read the hype for over a year, before venturing down a few months ago for an event. This place is , at best , an average underground boozer, but with serious delusions of grandeur. You could smell the piss from the toilets sat outside in...More

Went here for the cupcake and glass of Prosecco deal. The staff were very friendly and the male bartender who served us was very helpful. Got served quickly with no problems. Good atmosphere but not when it started to get busy. Worth a visit though.

Do not bother! Staff are rude. Even if you've booked a booth or paid upfront they try and deny it. Expensive drinks are served in plastic glasses. No table service as promised. Unfriendly and unwelcoming. Take your special night elsewhere!

Rude, obnoxious staff- stay clear! We were supposedly on the guest list as part of a hen weekend package but they said we had to pay £10. No gesture of goodwill at all- disappointing. Better places to go!

If this is as exclusive as Manchester gets then I am so glad I am at the end of my partying career. The place is shabby, the seats are ripped, you have to decant expensive spirits into cheap plastic carafes, drink champagne out of plastic...More

This place makes you feel welcome and the food was very nice. The only downside is because of the shops all around it people stop outside the windows to stare in while they are strolling around the shops. Not a big problem but some people...More

How this place can run as an 'Exclusive Members Club' I do not know. On arrival we were asked for photographic ID as everyone had to be scanned in, being grown ups (well past the age of needing ID) we didn't have any but the...More
