We went on a busy Saturday night and it was £8 entry but we got in for £5 each as we were given a flyer from their PR team. The place itself is really fun, tiki themed with a good selection of cocktails which at around £8 a go weren't extortionately priced - they were of a good standard and served in really quirky glasses as you would expect. The music was cheesy chart/R&B and there was a small lit up dancefloor through the back. I really enjoyed myself however one thing I would say is that the bar is VERY high up so I was ignored every time I went to get a drink as I am only 5ft 2 but my partner who is 6ft got served instantly every time!! Just a small irritation but I am willing to let that go as I really did rate the place and would definitely be back!

Extortionate prices, horrible music, worse people. Communal Lynx deodorant in the male bathroom. Need I say more.

A smallish club on Frederick Street. The music is cheesy and the cocktail list is unusual and extensive. It's mainly youngsters but, there were a few oldies in there. I had the turkish delight cocktail which was delicious! I may go back in the future when abit more drunk as it's one of those places?!

I went to this club in October where a member of staff gave away my leather jacket and scarf from the cloakroom. After 2 months of chasing, the so-called manager has offered me compensation of less than a third of the value of the jacket and scarf (even after they said it would be fully reimbursed and after I had sent a receipt for the goods). Absolutely ridiculous!!!

The pictures make this place look nicer than it really is...everything is a bit grubby and sticky. We went on a Friday night and is full of the younger crowd but you wouldn't expect anything else when drinks are £1.50! Music was ok, the dance floor has seen better days and they really need to calm down on the smoke machine...yes I did say smoke machine....It was like being in some odd underground dungeon in the 80s!
