Was taken here by friends after seeing Samiam play up the road at Bi Nuu. Many drinks were partaken in the very friendly bar at reasonable prices. There was a great atmosphere all night. No hint of anyone getting too drunk and lary.

We were recommended this bar from another barman - spent a long time looking for it! Able to smoke inside which was great, music was very "underground".
