The Bats bar has a nice ambience and the music is good but the bartenders have a bad culture of overselling and inflating the bill. Needs some grown up supervision to teach some values and how to sincerely engage with customers instead of trying to rip them off.

Evidently there is a lot of crazy activity at BATS late at night, but if you go early (before 9), it is actually a good enough bar with good food and drink selection. Recommend

I have eaten here on many occasions. The Lamb is always succulent with plenty for the average meal. Can be a bit noisy with a Live Band, but that's a great reason to go to BATS.

They have excellent live entertainment, a hopping mixed crowd of expats, tourists, business people, and locals.
