We ended up here one evening because the market we visited was a bit lame and it was cold. Refusing to go home we walked to this bar. I loved it! Music was on point, people were enjoying themselves and the cocktails were so good!...More

It's a treat finding this little spot tucked away in a quiet courtyard off a main road. There is an extensive cocktail menu in this eclectic bar and I've tasted a few of them; all good. Not only vodka based.

The drinks here are excellent. You have a great variety of drinks and they are reasonably priced. The bartenders are attentive and know what they are doing. I would highly recommend this bar.

We only have appetizers,so can't say much about the food. But for drinks, chilling or house music - great place. Great bartenders, great drinks. And the dj's mix of house music and R&B were on point. We had a lot of fun.
