We love this place. It has all the ingredients that we look for in a great night out: fantastic sounds, lovely people and very personable staff. Last Saturday was only our second time here, but we will definitely be back.

Stumbled across this place for a night cap- ended up leaving at 3:00 am. Brilliant tunes and a fantastic atmosphere. Absolutely a brilliant evening - best wrong turn I have ever took! Well done to Dan for the music

It is called cocktail bar but lacks the charm and decor of a cocktail bar. Looks actually like an underground pub! They serve more cheap wine and beer and the cocktails are very average. And of course much too loud.
