We were looking for a new cocktail bar in York. Found the Bora Bora not far from the other cocktail bars we visit.Good music, mixed crowd but getting younger as the night wore on.Cocktails were a reasonable price but the best thing about this bar was the cheerful atmosphere. Definitely worth a revisit.

We stumbled across this place by accident. We were heading home, and decided to look in the Mediterranean "patio". The place was just like being abroad. Great music, great staff, and the security guy was very helpful. Prices were also good. We staying for a couple of drinks, and just watched the rather younger crowd have fun. I would recommend this place for a late evening drink.

In relation to the review dated 21 May 2014 regarding a doorman with a "bad attitude" I can confirm that this doorman was not sacked by the security company. He is a polite and professional door supervisor who has been requested to work on several bars and clubs throughout York. Disgruntled customers who are refused entry will often try to blacken the name of a bar or make a doorman look bad as a way of getting revenge. However, this particular doorman chose to move to a different security company because he was offered a job elsewhere and is highly regarded in his new role. He was not "sacked".

My boyfriend and I decided to have a mid afternoon cocktail and this place was so inviting! It may have been the sun shining that made us feel like we were on holiday but the outside area of the bar was nicely decorated and gave us that holiday feeling. The cocktails are £4.95 a glass (not a bad price) and the pitchers £15. We decided to share a Mojito pitcher and it was nice to see the barman didn't scrimp on the alcohol (he even tried it with straws to see if it needed more and sprinkled a bit more in!). It also tasted lovely. Needless to say this was the only drink we had and we were both very merry afterwards! The only downside was the lack of napkins as the condensation on the glass made my hands wet. Other than that I would definitely go again.
