“Rubbish Cocktails”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2013

Went here today on recommendation from another establishment. Asked for a Long Island Iced Tea and can honestly say its the worst I have ever had; so much so I had to complain. They did exchange for another cocktail.

When I asked what was in the Long Island Iced Tea the waitress said there's a double shot in each ..... Strange as there should be 5 separate shots of 5 different white spirits Gin, Vodka, Tequila, , White Rum and Triple Sec, how does that equal a double shot? We couldn't taste the alcohol, it was so sour, it was awful. Yes they happily replaced it but .......

The cocktail they replaced it with was a Mojito, the lime and mint are supposed to be muddled together to release the juice of the lime and the oils in the mint. No lime in this one, the first Mojito I have seen made with lemons!!! Only the lime was muddled, the mint was clapped in the waitresses hands, why I have no idea but it released nothing.

If you want expertly mixed cocktails, don't go here, it's a waste of money.

“Great Little Cocktail Bar!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2013

This is a great place, but easy to miss as it's up a small alley. Small and intimate with a great atmosphere, friendly staff and most importantly - wonderful cocktails. If you're a martini fan - don't miss the 'Vespa'... Have never tried the food.

“Great cocktail bar!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 6, 2013

discovered this little gem out of the blue and was very impressed! great cocktail bar where the staff use raw ingredients infront of you to make the cocktails, almost all have lemons in - hence the name and the prices are good on some day - can find some great bargains. only downside is it is quite small so a big group wouldnt do well in here, they would do alot better if they expanded and maybe relocated to an easier to find location, but honestly nothing bad to say about the place, i love it and always reccommend it know no-one has heard of the place!!
