Having been to many cocktail bars around, we love this place - feels like London vibes but hidden away down a quiet road in St Albans (centrally located). Really good cocktails and great staff. It’s our fave place! Do book in advance if you can...More

Wow this place is a gem, best place to go in St Albans. Made sure we booked as advised from reading previous reviews. Staff super friendly and know their cocktails inside out, even went off menu. Will be back (when hangover permits me too!) Oh,...More

Hi RomfordPele, This happens from time to time, specifically the ‘shocked’ part. I don’t bother with these types of reviews typically but I am waiting on for a meeting to start so, allow me to explain... We have alaways operated a bookings system and, as...More

We turned up without a booking. It’s a cocktail bar I didn’t expect to have to book it’s not a restaurant. But they did their best to make sure we were comfortable. Found us seats when a slot came free and were very polite when...More

This place is definitely a well hidden spot. Great for a night out with friends or your partner. Has both a downstairs and an upstairs so plenty of space if there’s a larger group. The drinks were all great and the bartenders very friendly. Really...More

We visited this bar with friends. It’s decorated really nicely and the staff were really friendly. We all had different cocktails which were delicious. I’d recommend booking in advance as when we were there they were fully booked. We’ll definitely be returning to try a...More

I'm not aware of any food. It's just drinks and you have to book online for entrance. You cannot walk in, pre booked only entrance. There's isn't even a contact number just in case you're running late
