Still a nice friendly place with a good, mixed age clientèle. The re-fit is good, nicely decorated and has a much more sexy male feel about it. Quite easy to pick-up or be picked-up in here. Bar prices remain ok considering the location.

Generally a nice crowd, quite friendly (not shy, but also not too full-on) and approachable. Mixed ages and backgrounds. Bar staff are good looking and very efficient, prices quite good considering the location.
