Amazing place, poor service
Oct 2020 • Friends
I am normally a big fan of 33 Cank street and whenever I have friends visiting it is the first place I take them as I have always felt it offers a much better range and experience than most bars in Leicester.
However, we visited on Saturday and were disappointed with the service. We booked the table for an hour. Whilst I appreciate booking is even more important during the pandemic and that all your staff have had to adapt to the changes, the way they managed the time slots was rude. Our drinks took 15-20 mins to arrive, we were then given a count down every 10 minutes of how long we had left on the booking. Due to this, we didn’t bother to order more than one drink as we felt rushed and it wasn’t the relaxed experience we had hoped for. The bar was empty, with only 2 other tables taken and the whole of town was empty that night so I can’t imagine there were customers queuing around the block to get in. We would have spent more and enjoyed ourselves more if we were not on a countdown to leave.
I have also tried to support the bar throughout lockdown by buying the takeaway cocktail service and both times have found the manager to be rude, poor at communication and inflexible with timings.
It’s a place I normally love and want to see small business such as this thrive in Leicester so will return but hoping they work on customer service.

The most overpriced margarita in Leicester
Jan 2020 • Friends
I’ve been coming to this little bar for years but it’s gone down hill recently both in terms of service and the massive hike in prices for classic cocktails. The menu given says happy hour is £6/£7 and nowhere does it mention a full price classic cocktail. However it’s gone from £7.50 to £10!!! There’s a better margarita to be had at the the bottle garden and they won’t chuck you out after 90 mins either! Such a shame it’s not such the special place it was.

Outstanding Service and the Perfect Classic Manhattan
Jan 2020
The cocktails are amazing, the team are amazing and Shania and Lina are superb hosts. Cocktails by Jack and Chalky are well worth having. Made to perfection..... Without a doubt the best bar in Leicester. Lovely ambiance, good music and a place where like minded folk can exchange decent conversation.

i have been back a few times and loved it every time.

best to reserve a table and maximum allowed time per sitting is 2 hours.
this is a hidden gem in leicester. So glad its around.

this bar comes highly recommended.

Nice Experience
Aug 2019 • Family
Went as a family to celebrate a birthday drink after a meal at Highcross. It was busy and we sat outside. The lady who served was great and explained the types of drinks. Only realy issue was the man who kept begging and asking for money. It mad us feel really uncomfortable given we had our 17 year old with us as well.

Expensive and uncomfortable
Oct 2019 • Couples
Always wanted to go...what a let down - great music but so overpriced. We had two cocktails totalling £18 which weren't special at all although they were made to order. Seating is uncomfortable wooden chairs or a lumpy sofa. Better drinks and atmosphere at most other venues nearby!

Hello Thanks for your feedback, we will certainly take it on-board, especially the uncomfortable furniture! It would be great to know, what you ordered, £9 per drink is a fair price to pay for a cocktail in Leicester city especially baring in mind, its a table service and we dont "water down" our drinks and you get bang for your buck, with minimum 50ml (double) of spirit base. If your drinks weren't to your liking, our bartenders are always on-call to adjust them for you. We have our classic cocktail hour, daily 4-7pm and all day Sunday, classic cocktail £4-7 Kind Regards Xander

Banging cocktails, cracking environment, lovely bartenders
Jun 2019
I visited this fantastic establishment for a few drinks with my best friend since it had been her birthday recently and we were trying out some bars. We were served by the magnificent Jack with the majestic beard who greeted us with a smile and seated us.

He walked us through the menu since we weren't sure what we wanted. I asked what he would recommend and ordered that and it did not disappoint. The presentation was outstanding and watching Jack make my drink was an event in itself, not to mention the fact that it was delicious and made me want another. My friend's drink was equally spectacular and made with flawless effort.

This is not just a cocktail bar, this is an art show and you can see that the people who work there, really enjoy what they do. I had a really great time and will definitely come back again and again. This is the place to go, forget anywhere else.

Great cocktails! Most are different and have their own twists on classics. Bartenders put on a brilliant show for us as we were sitting at the bar. Staff very nice and helped us choose some great cocktails

Cocktail afternoon tea

Had the cocktail afternoon tea which came with a fabulous hamper of nibbles and
3 cocktails each. We didn’t get to choose the cocktails but all 3 were really nice! The sandwiches in the hamper were soooo nice! Great value for money!
