Visiting Manchester and ended up spending a few hours here trying various cocktails. Bar staff were excellent- competently multi tasking working their way through the orders and complex cocktails. Very impressed. Cocktails were delicious and made to a high standard. Can’t wait to go again

Cocktails were a bit hit and miss. Waitress chewed her words and seemed to be interested in selling drinks rather than find out what we actually wanted. E.g., maybe to narrow things down by asking what sort of cocktail we liked, what spirit base etc?...More

I would think so like before 10pm because there is a separate side for the restaurant but I would ring them to check :)
