“excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2012

I live in york and this is one of local bars i go to alot excellent service and excellent cocktails, its so relaxed in there and ive never seen any trouble. once you are in its hard to leave as the atmosphere is so nice, if you like cocktails i would recommend you get a pitcher as they are better value.

“Cheap & cheerful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2012

After failing to be acknowledged at another cocktail bar in York, we went to the next place on my list, Bora Bora. Quick service, a nice atmosphere, especially for early on a Wednesday night, and reasonably priced pitchers of yummy cocktails. Add the fact the staff knew what they were doing and were welcoming and chatty, then you have a great little cocktail bar.

Try the Alabama Slammer, it's wonderful!
