“Service was slow...unable to mix most drinks”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

Bar service is not up to the same service standard provided by the
Adjoining hotel staff. Bartender unfamiliar with common American mixed drinks.

“Nice bar.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

This was a nice wee bar where we went for a drink after our dinner in the Tower Hotel restaurant. Lots of photographs on the walls.
There was a bit of music as well on the Fri night which was quite good.

The waiters were spectacular and the atmosphere delightful. Great little piece of history to sit back and unwind!

“Disappointment”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013 via mobile

Heard Lyric did live music so popped in for a drink. It was dead. 4 other people in the bar and absolutely no atmosphere. No live music or even the promise of any. The music from the stereo was so loud it made chatting difficult. Plenty of photos to stare at instead as tried to finish drink to leave onto somewhere with a bit more of an atmosphere. Nothing remarable...would avoid going back

“Over too soon!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

We went to the bar both nite of our stay in the hotel, birthday coctails were amazing, and the artists both nites just set the scene perefectly, real good music, only downside was the music stopping, relativley early in the evening, which I suspect was through respect for clientelle staying in the hotel, and to although for non customers to be ushered of the premises before closing time, hower if your staying in the hotel your quite welome to stay on a little while.
