We totally stumbled across this place by accident walking around the backstreets of Galle at night. We'd seen the shop with similar branding earlier in the day and decided to have a look at some of the things for sale when we realised it was also a cocktail bar!

Escape the heat of the night with a cool cocktail. Great music and friendly staff. Marguerita and Mojito were superb. Sorry we were only staying for one night in Galle, or we would have returned. 10 out of 10 for service and quality...You must check out the art for sale too! 😀

A dramatic decor with a mix of art, homedecor, jewellery and clothes. And it's a bar too. We really loved the atmosphere here as evening falls.

This place is a very nice place to enjoy your evening with a cocktail. I visited many cocktail bars in Fort but I never saw a bar like this one. There're friendly staff in Living Room. You can listen to DJ music while you enjoy your cocktail. Also this place is a suitable please for couples to enjoy their evening.

OTT is the easiest description of this venue. Executed with style, extreme style and maintained really well. I go here from time to time so am impressed with the way it maintains standards. Staff as always go out of their way to make sure you are well looked after. Excellent Cocktails, good music. Well done guys.

We liked this place very much. The interior is really special and different from all other places we went to have a drink. Service was good.

The look of the entrance, the music blaring out from within and the kinky costumes of the ushers at the entrance gives the impression that there is a popular disco inside. But it's nothing like that. There are a few seats at the end of the long cave like venue. The cave is full of clutter and could be mistaken... More
