4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2014

We had an after drink time in this place and it felt like a warm Scottish home with all bricks and a middle bar with couches and cocktail tables, the staff were freindly even though they were busy, nice atmosphere and the prices were substantial, Luv the place and will always return with freinds.

I seldom go to bars but have been in this one three times in the last week. They have a new shipment of fresh Cuban cigars I've been sampling. Two visits and the wait staff already knew what I wanted, and the security guys know my first name. Enjoying this very much!

Courteous and attentive staff, excellent atmosphere (even during the holy month) and great food from a somewhat limited menu. U like Stills in the Crowne Plaza service is really excellent. Within minutes our order is taken and when we... More

Very dimly lit restaurant and gets very smoky. Went as a group of 6 and struggled to find seating area other than right by the door. Would not take entertainer voucher as was told promotion running. Happy hour? Food was ok but there are plenty other much brighter, nicer places in AD
