You get everything from coffee to hard drinks. I had a couple of my red lebel and relaxed with friends. the decoration of walls with bottles of hard drinks in every shape and size gives a different look inside.

GQ is a bit hidden, fun bar lounge with a DJ, bar & sitting area & a restricted floor upstairs. Nice place for first drinks before you hit the nightclubs !
