The bar is cute, small and cozy. There is a live band that plays everyday except on Sundays when there was a live pianist playing. We had some bites with our drinks. It was a good place to hang out and finish the weekend quietly.More

Had an enjoyable time until we had service charge, VAT AND "E-tax" added. Be aware that your bill will be inclusive of this. Upon enquiry it's an entertainment tax that the babies usually absorb themselves .. but not here.
