May look/sounds like a bit of a tourist trap, but it's a lovely place! Tucked away in a very small space, it's perfect for romance or just relaxing for a few drinks. The drink menu is quite large, with just about everything you can think of. Reminded me of a small, smoky jazz club. Check it out!

This is a great place to stop and have a cocktail or two or even try out a few great whiskies! There is a comprehensive selection to choose from and the staff are very friendly and welcoming.
