It is a regular place. Some may say it is even bad looking. The atmosphere is nice but you see it’s on a rooftop of a hostel. So you can spend some time with old friends, but I would not recommend if you want to...More

Live Sound or DJ. Tasty drinks. Always quite packed with people. Go there to enjoy a sunset apero or to enjoy for a while. It is worth to walk/climb up the couple od floors... :-)

The view is great. On a nice day it was a relaxing place to chill. The waitress however was utterly disinterested and spent the whole time on the phone. Few ingredients for any cocktails apparently (or she couldn't be bothered). A real shame.

You have to go up the stairs, which really makes you crave a cocktail. We got there after a jazz event, so they ran out of a lot of things. Not much space, but you have a nice view. Around 7 pm you can see...More

The drinks are pretty bad! We actually tried to drink some known cocktails and they had only some of the ingredients.
