Never eaten but the club scene is my favorite, kinda reminds me of a school dance (mayfair, for us trinis) good drinks, good music, bathrooms are in a very strange place, someone could get damaged.

Part lounge, pub, nightclub, outdoor deck and poor representation of all. Overcrowded with most people just standing around staring at each other. No true dance floor with makeshift spots in the lounge area where the lighting prevents a mood to encourage dancing from being set. Bartenders are knowledgeable, quick but are too few to handle the drink orders of patrons and table servers leading to pile ups at the bar. Can be better if it decides what type of space it wants to be and just be the best at that.

When I arrived it was early(6.55pm) and all the staff were standing outside the door. One of them opened the door for me. There were only five customers in there. I approached the bar enquired from the bartender why there were no customers since 5pm to 7pm was the advertised "happy hour". He responded that it was early still. I ordered a frozen margarita and was told that they did not have a blender. I ordered a vodka and orange juice(did not like it) and sat down to await the rest of the group. I sat there for 1/2 hour and was not approached by any wait staff, not even to offer a menu or a fresh drink. The table's legs were uneven so after a while I sat in a booth.

When my group arrived we went into a lounge area and extra chairs were brought in to accomodate us. The place soon started filling up and everyone gathered (standing) in the lounge area. The waitress was very pleasant but there were only two of them and our coffee styled table was never cleared of our bottles, glasses and dishes until there was no place to put anything else.

Their menu is not very varied, mostly beef burgers, salads, fries, if you do not eat beef your only other option is chicken strips which is tasty , their fries are tasty also.

Did not enjoy their pina colada because it appeared that they ran out of coconut milk.

When the DJ started playing music, his only selection seemed to be Techno.

The ethnic mix of patrons was very diverse, and that is always a plus, because no one feels out of place.

When the bill came we were very pleasantly surprised that it was a lot less that we expected for a party of 8.

My recommendations to the owner are
1)we could have left without paying our bill because two waitresses is not enough and with all the people standing around it is difficult to keep an eye on your diners, We stood in line at the cashier to pay our bill and we had to go in search of the waitress to give her a tip.
2)you should separate the eating area because no one wants peoples butts around them when they are eating.
3) DJ should be more diverse, because your clientele was diverse in ethnicity, age and gender.
4) Bartender may need some training and blended drinks are very popular

Overall, the atmosphere was welcoming. It was a better than average experience
