I absolutely adore this place and treat myself to a Corn and Oil once or twice a month. The atmosphere is great (although it is disrupted a bit these days with the usual secret entrance not allowed to be used due to construction) and the cocktails are innncccreeeedible. The staff are so friendly and really care about their drinks and customers. A must-do when you visit- or indeed live- in the fair city. The secrecy of your entry to, ahem, the "Blind Woman's Funeral" adds so much to the whole experience! Family, friends, couples- you can't go wrong.

We visited with friends for cocktails after visiting last year on my hen party. The service was great and the bar staff were really accommodating in making different variations of the cocktails and suggesting drinks.
It was a shame the usual entrance was closed due to building work, the arrivals process is fun especially if coming for the first time. The menus continue the theme with the cocktails hidden within old books.
I'd also recommend the cocktail classes for groups, really fun.

Great concept with good drinks menu to match. Good range of cocktails and drinks that I feel matched the prohibition feel of the place! Service was good!

Booked a table for cocktails mid week. The reservations and arrivals process was entertaining and added to the experience as first timers although I suspect it would be less effective for repeat visits!

Happily the venue lived up to the image created on the website and we had a great evening. The prohibition theme is continued through the basement location, the low lighting (seriously, you will need a torch or a mobile phone to read the menu) and the drinks menu hidden in old books.

I can't comment on the food as we stuck to the liquid menus however the range and quality of drinks on offer is excellent and the general ambience in the small venue made it a very pleasant place to be.

We will return. Heartily recommended

on point with its drinks and on point with its reservation and subsequent "leading you down a stairwell" process.
