Always busy which says it all.Welcoming and friendly,not the place for real ale lovers but for anyone who wants a fun,sociable time with great music,look no further.They have a eclectic approach to live music,anything from classical guitar recitals,to rockabilly and funk but always totally excellent.Good acoustics too.The décor is also unique with an art gallery upstairs plus with Perroni on...

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
