Great location to spend an evening and a very diverse and fun crowd. Its very comfy and the music is not too loud so one can chat. The lady liked the cocktails. Its a cute place to end the day.

Hi, I am really sorry to hear this. However please do not feel that this is because of greedy service, a 12.5% discretionary (optional) service charge is common in all high end bars and is seen printed on all of our bills. Our customers have...More

I have been well impressed with this cocktail club. I spent few nights over here and the atmosphere never disappointed me! Great service and amusing drinks! All the bartenders have amazing skills and talent! Innovative menu and also a sexy spanker! What else?
