Only went for a couple of drinks but minimal wait at 10.40pm on aFriday night, despite initially sting we might not get in. Syrupy cocktails but that's how I like them!!!

Well where to begin?

Forget about the quirks of the place for one minute, yes the entrance is like nothing I have ever experienced and I can't see it being bettered. But this place is not just about how you get in.

Once you get inside you are greeted by some of the friendliest and most professional staff you will find behind any bar not only in London but anywhere in the world. If you don't know what to order they will be more than happy to give you a hand in the right direction be that alcohol or food wise.

The atmosphere when we were there on Sunday afternoon (26/05/13) was brilliant with customers chatting away to each other and a bit of banter being had in all directions.

If you have time to go for a drink and a bite to eat in London and do not visit this place you will miss out on a true experience and one I doubt you will forget anytime soon.

By the way say hello to the Mayor for me,

Cheers
James

Enjoyed our night out here, the basement bar is fun and the cocktails are inventive and potent. Not sure why it's so popular other than being hidden away behind a big fridge door, but good fun none the less. Great for friends out celebrating

I've been to some great bars, but never one with such a unique entrance.... so forget all of the noisy 'chains' on Bishopsgate and head down here for a real treat.
Small and cosy downstairs with good and not too expensive cocktails.

Well worth asking for an audience with 'The Mayor', just get here early if you want a seat :)

Loved this place. Arrive and ask to see the mayor......
Won't spoil it but def worth a visit. Great cocktails and yummy basic bar snacks.
Only criticism is it needed to be slightly darker inside. Lights way too bright.
