This place was great when it first opened with John Ryan pianist. Good drinks and orderves from next door. To bad they no longer have open cocktail bar. I entertained folks there and they enjoyed it and the food and drinks and the entertainment. I'd love to open it myself for. Nice cocktail place !

On June 3, 2016 my husband and I hosted our son/daughter-in-law-to be's rehearsal dinner. We chose this facility because the bridal shower was held here a few months earlier.

When it first opened, the tapas dishes weren't appealing to me. Now, I couldn't be happier. Each dish is more yummy than the last. Some are so great I have to order a second dish immediately. The cocktails are exceptional and the bartender can make every drink you order.

This restaurant is situated in downtown Melbourne next to Island Pasta. We were there on a Friday night and there were very few people in the restaurant. The decor is pleasant and there's a large platform at the front of the restaurant that can be used for entertainment. The place is cold and dark, so bring a sweater or jacket.... More

We enjoy the downtown and were looking for something different, we found it. Most unique. My wife was supposed to join us (date night for the elders), but was called into work on a last-minute thing, I third-wheeled it my the other couple, our dear friends. We ended up just drinking.
