Visited about 10pm on Friday. Great cocktail but very little atmosphere. Sat downstairs and everyone looked a bit glum.

So nice to find Cocktails that aren’t called Porn Star and the like. No, these were modern titled cocktails with great flavours. My favourite was ‘Bon Mot’ it was really refreshing. Nice decor too!

The bar was (unsurprisingly) quiet when we arrived at 5.30pm on a Sat eve. Cocktails were excellent and good value. Service was very friendly and fast and the music and vibe was cool.

My friends and I have been to Hawthorn before, when it was just upstairs and the atmosphere was buzzing but cosy. They've now expanded to downstairs which doesn't quite have the same atmosphere. On a cold, snowy Friday night the bar didn't seem to have...More
