The food portions are pathetic and my steak was like pure fat, my partners stew was the most vile thing we have ever sampled. The staff are rude and lacked any interested in taking our order. The toilets are bar area are disgusting. Like... More

Why Not Bar doens't have the nicest reputation, but from all the times my students visited nothing happened. Once even it happened that one of the staff members took care of a handbag from a drunk student, and nothing was lost. The dancefloor is big, alcohol prices fine, but the mix of the music terrible.

Reading the reviews made me think I was going to be stabbed in this place. It isn't as bad as every is making out. I didn't have a hangover the next day after drinking as much as I usually do. The staff were friendly to me and one even came and spoke to me for a little while. It's not... More

Terrible. If you want to keep your phone or handbag do not go anywhere near this bar. Friend had phone stolen out of his pocket, security didn't care. Dodgy grubby thieves wait outside and nearby on bikes and steal handbags when u leave. Stay away heaps better bars elsewhere.

This was without a doubt the absolute worst restaurant I have ever been to with the rudest and most unfriendly staff i have ever encountered. I thought our experience was horrendous until I read other reviews. Please AVOID this disgusting venue. It sickens me to know humans can be so nasty. Please don't support the drugged drinks, theft, and the... More

My friend bought ONE beer that was druged behind the bar - she got her bag stolen by the staff and we had to spend two days in the hospital. It is the worst place I have ever been too. I am so angry that this can happen, and I advise everyone NOT to go there.
