Went there last night for a leaving party, nothing special, from the drinks, to the staff, even the music and the people... Was not the first time there, but i'm not sure i'm going to come again

Only go there if you want to have a warm beer in a smelly plastic glass. It is a low budget place so it is full of schoolboys, so adults would prefer to go somewhere else

if you do not specify you want a single drink when ordering you will automatically be given a double. A very expensive lesson to learn, Bar staff not very friendly or helpful.

This place is extremely loud and annoying. There's multiple mirror balls like a 70's disco (not in a good way) There were multiple security people at the front door even though it was not that busy. The bartenders spent a lot of time chatting with...More
