Extremely popular spot for night scene on a Saturday night. Visited with friends, for drinks and dancing. Great vibe, can get very crowded. Outdoor area (as expected) can get full of smokers, so is not always the "fresh air" you are looking for. Music is pretty good - and crosses a few genres. Popular with university students, although the age... More

This looked like a quirky little bar so we decided to stop in for a drink. It caters for the university crowd, with "student specials". However, we definately didn't look like students - but still got a free burger with a beer, no student card required ! One young woman even gave me hers - so dinner for the price... More

I visited this place twice and loved the experience both the times. But both the experiences were different. The first time I visited the place was on a Friday night and the place was really crowded. There was great music and the dance floor crowd looked really fun. However the next time I visited on a Wednesday night and it... More

We stopped off for a beer on the way back to our cruise ship, the beer was cold and refreshing and very cheap - we were also offered a free burger. Good company and atmosphere.

One of our fav bars. Always good music and good cocktails. There is a door charge after 11pm but it's worth it once your in

We visited the Lenin Bar and had a couple of drinks there earlier in the evening. Staff was not very attentive and we had to wait a while to be served. We didn't like the atmosphere at all.

Enticed in here when we decided not to go into the adjoining Ice Bar. Free Barbie they told us and happy hour. Outgoing staff, fabulous food that just kept on coming and happy hour to boot! 4 drinks for $20.00. We stayed put here for a while and ended up not wanting dinner!
