We are still small in size but extremely large on hospitality with great service and good conversation. We offer a fantastic choice of drinks, an amazing list of cocktail's mixed and served to perfection and special prices during Happy Hours. On top of playing a wide variety of requested music at the volume that is suitable, we also have Live Music during the week. So, come on in, dance, tap your feet and sing along and you are all guaranteed a great nights entertainment. We are at the top of the Cul-de-Sac, adjacent to the Slave Market. « less

This bar was fantastic. The drinks were great and very reasonably priced and the owner Marilyn was such a good host. I sat and worked my way through some of the cocktails from the extensive list and every time I was given my drink I was asked if it was okay and to my liking. The music was great and... More

I love going out, but I love going here! This is a place for every age group, it's friendly, the drinks are great, the music if not live is mainly 80's 90's, good stuff that doesn't get on your nerves! What a fantastic night any night of the week 😃!
