The smell...oh my God the smell it is horrific. I asked the bar staff what the smell was and was told it didn't smell. The cocktails are disgusting and the toilets - I'd rather go outside. The bar itself is filthy too. Revs on the corner is much better.

I have visited mimos a few times and every time i think the same thing... Its always freezing cold and has a damp smell/feel in the air. The drinks are ok if your want a massive cheap cocktail for £3 or whatever they are! Nothing special! Typical cheapy toon bar! Which is sometimes just what you want!

I went in to Mimo's last night with a few friends to take advantage of the 2-4-1 mojito offer, NEVER AGAIN! As others have said, the bar has a bad smell and feels very unclean! Our mojitos were awful and were made with ice cubes rather than crushed ice! Terrible considering this place is meant to be a cocktail bar.... More

A few of the girls decided that we should try Mimos for Saturday night cocktails. First of all upon entry you are hit with a disgusting smell of damp.After waiting 35 MINUTES at the bar we were eventually served. By this point we begrudged spending our money at this place as the service we received was absolutely dreadful!! One member... More

I have nothing good to say about this bar... It's dire! If you're in town miss this out... Newcastle is full of bars, some good, some bad but you can have a much better night out by missing out a place like this! I find it insane that whoever revamped this dump decided to give it a new name, a... More

Some colleagues and myself work close to Mimo decided to give it a try on our lunch time. Walking into Mimo we were the only ones in the place apart from a couple of other colleagues from our work. There were four of us, three of us eating and one just having a coffee. The coffee came with a little... More

We went with a Living Social voucher - £25 for champagne, mezze and nachos. Only took a couple attempts to make the booking so no problems there really. It was a Friday night so quite busy as usual in Newcastle. Got a nice high table seat opposite the bar and staff were attentive. We got our champagne within 5 mins... More

Deal purchased via Living Social for £25 incl a bottle of Duvel Champagne, nachos and a sharing mezze. Living Social detailed the telephone number on the deal and it didnt start well when I tried several times to phone to book but no one answered the phone, nor was there an answer machine. Bizarre... I found Mimo on the internet... More

Well I don't quite know where to start! We also had a Groupon voucher. I presume they aren't doing too well and are trying to make a name for themselves, well that they may be but it isn't a good one!!! We were first told they didn't have our booking despite several days of calling at different times for what... More
