Great place, definitely worth it, friends, groups or couples. Bar staff are fantastic, quick and imaginative. They quickly get to know what you like. Small place dimly/softly lit, but as it's booking only there is plenty of space, and doesnt feel danknor creepy. What you...More

We went here after a recommendation from someone who had a great time. The concept, venue, and decor are fantastic and set a really good tone. What spoilt it for us was the attitude of the barman. He didn't ask what sort of cocktails we...More
