Probably ace for clubbing artistic types. Was clean and tidy. Felt a bit empty and boring despite live music. The gallery upstairs is a nice touch if you like that sort of thing. We're 40's and not into art so wouldn't go back ourselves.

this is a little maze, seating downstairs where live music is played, discreet seating dotted around the building for a quieter corner to chat. more sophisticated than local pubs and a chance to dress up

Obnoxious doorman! Manageress not much better. 15 mins wait for a cocktail in an empty bar. Atmosphere non existent. Only bothering to write the review because everything about it irritated me! Clearly I won't be returning in a hurry!!!

Been in this place a couple of times now. Both early afternoon. Both times after entering and standing at the bar for literally 5 mins having to physically shout for service. Where are the staff? I can tell you, playing on their laptops. I understand its quiet and boring with no clients. But if youre open then make the effort!!

During 2012 Deco 5 was not open in the early afternoons. Opening time was 6pm other than Sundays when we opened at 4pm. Not sure how you managed to get into the bar. More
