Poor (slow service) from bar staff plus one inexperienced person could not help regarding types of drinks being served and unsupervised. Not impressed so did not wait around and received better service in another place.

Advertised as a champagne and wine bar. It has a very, very poor selection of both. Horrible atmosphere and very untidy. A total and utter mess. Just avoid it!

Had a night out here on Saturday. Was a good laugh. Good drinks and decent music to dance to. Friendly staff. But hardly any of the ladies toilets had locks on them or were unable to lock which was a pain.

I have not been here for a while and we popped in after being in the main bar area (which was flat) for a drink. Perhaps we were unlucky with our timing but this was also a bit flat. Will come back a little later...More
