We stumbled across this bar by accident, but thank goodness we did. Nice cooktails, but the decor is what sets it apart, has to be seen to be understood.

We’ve been here a few times. I love it. The doorman’s dog is cute, staff are friendly, great drinks selection and a quirky environment. You have to hunt to find it, it’s not obvious even when you’re almost at the door. Well worth the effort...More

We fell upon it, thanks to Google! It has a tiny door under the road, you'd easily miss it even with Google! And it extends under the road in a series of arches filled with the most wonderful mixture of furniture. Definitely worth booking if...More
